The Wolverine star was recently diagnosed with a rare form of skin cancer

Actor Hugh Jackman has been treated for skin cancer after wife Deborra-Lee Furness encouraged him to get a growth on his nose checked. Jackman posted a picture of himself on Instagram Thursday. In the picture, his nose is seen covered with a band-aid, reported a website.

Along with the image, he wrote: “Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basal cell carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And use sunscreen.” Basal cell carcinoma is a form of skin cancer which results in a sore on the skin. It happens due to long-term exposure to the sun.

Jackman has acted in movies like X-Men series, Kate & Leopold, Van Helsing, The Prestige, Australia, Real Steel,Les Misérables, and Prisoners.
