Get well soon, Hugh Jackman.
The A-list actor took to Instagram on Monday, Feb. 13 to sadly reveal he's been treated for skin cancer again.
"Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear! #WearSunscreen," Hugh, 48, captioned a photo of himself with his nose bandaged up.
The father-of-two was first diagnosed with skin cancer in November 2013 when his makeup artist pointed out a worrisome spot on his face and urged him to have it checked out by a doctor. Since then, Hugh has battled three more bouts of skin cancer — on his nose in May and October 2014 and recently on his shoulder — and had surgery to remove cancerous skin cells after each diagnosis.
In a previous interview, Hugh opened up about his ongoing battle. "I go every three months for checkups. It's the new normal for me. My doctor says I'll likely have more and if that's your cross to bear in life, you should be so lucky," he said at the time.
"It's always a bit of a shock just hearing the word 'cancer,'" The Wolverine star added. "Being an Australian, [skin cancer] is a very common thing. I never wore sunscreen growing up so I was a prime candidate for it."
The actor recently opened up about another one of his health issues: his anxiety. Hugh previously confessed he was super nervous while filming X-Men back in 2000, which almost led him to get fired from the gig!
“I was freaking out,” he admitted. At the time, the studio executive Tom Rothman gave him a pep talk to calm his nerves.
“He had a gut feeling that I was the guy but [my acting] was... average, to be honest,” Hugh recalled. “I thought I was getting away with it, but I wasn't."
