Hugh Jackman has minor surgery for skin cancer

  • Hugh Jackman posted a picture of himself on Instagram, where he could be seen with a bandage on his nose. He informed his fans that his wife of 17 years, Deborah Lee Furness, had asked him to get a mark on his nose checked and he was glad he did, since it turned out to be basal cell carcinoma, one of the most common forms of skin cancer. He promptly had it removed. 

    The 45-year old Jackman posted a message to his fans which read "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!!!"
