Hugh Jackman suffers fresh cancer scare

Less than six months after the Les Miserables star underwent surgery on a basal cell carcinoma, Jackman has revealed he has had another procedure.

Posting a photo of his bandaged nose on Instagram on Thursday, the bearded actor wrote: "Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!."

Last year, the star's actress wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, encouraged him to see a dermatologist and get the "mark" on his nose checked. He finally agreed and discovered the cancer.

After surgery on 21 November, he said: "I’m feeling relieved, it’s good, cancer's all out and I'm very very grateful to my beautiful wife who forced me to go and get a check-up ... Typical man, I was like: 'Oh I’ll go next week'.

"The whole time, I thought it was not much, but only afterwards did they say: 'You’re really lucky you got it checked out now'."
