Hugh Jackman diagnosed with cancer.

Hugh, 47, had a basal cell carcinoma removed from his nose on Monday. He shared a bandaged image after the operation with a warning to fans.

“An example of what happens when you don’t wear sunscreen. He wrote on Instagram. “Basal Cell. The mildest form of cancer but serious, nonetheless. PLEASE USE SUNSCREEN and get regular check-ups,” he wrote.

Hugh has had four basal cell carcinomas treated since November 2013.

  • Have a speedy recovery Hugh. Such a great actor and human being. He is right, wear sunscreen and look after you skin.


  • yeah it is great that he has brought awareness to that issue.


  • I would like to make another comment if I may. I had a fall and ended up with a scar which took awhile to heal. It got itchy on one end and I scratched it in my sleep. It had formed a small crust, then a growth which I had removed which fortunately wasn’t Cancer. It doesn’t have to be where your skin is exposed. If you get scars keep a watch on them too.


  • Good on you Hugh help spread the message mate


  • Good on you Hugh for making more people aware of the importance of sunscreen

  • I am glad Hugh Jackman is speaking out about the danger of sun to our skin.
    Unfortunately our Grandparents didn’t have access to Sunscreen, so my parents didn’t as a child either.


  • Something we should be aware of every day!


  • Good on Hugh for using his popularity to spread a very important message. I hope he makes a full recovery!


  • It’s great that he’s putting any vanity aside to help others.


  • Although it is terrible news that Hugh requires treatment, I am glad to see he is using his celebrity status to spread the word on the dire importance of sun safe practices and regular check ups. Best of luck, Hugh.
