Hugh Jackman reveals fourth battle with skin cancer on Instagram, shares post-op photo

(FOX NEWS) “Wolverine” actor Hugh Jackman revealed Monday on Instagram that he underwent surgery for skin cancer and shared a bandaged photo of himself.

People magazine reported that Jackman, 47, captioned the photo with a warning to his followers:
“An example of what happens when you don't wear sunscreen. Basal Cell. The mildest form of cancer but serious, nonetheless. PLEASE USE SUNSCREEN and get regular check-ups," the actor wrote.

This is the actor’s fourth time being diagnosed with skin cancer, the magazine reported. His post-op photo Monday was his third in three years. He was first treated for basal cell carcinoma in November 2013, People reported.

“It's always a bit of a shock just hearing the word 'cancer,' " Jackman told People in 2015. "Being an Australian it's a very common thing. I never wore sunscreen growing up so I was a prime candidate for it."
