Hugh Jackman Treated for Skin Cancer
Actor Hugh Jackman was recently treated for skin cancer — a basal cell carcinoma, which of all the skin cancers, is the most minor and rarely metastasizes or kills. However, because it can cause serious disfigurement by invading surrounding tissues, it is still considered malignant.
The “X-Men” star has reportedly underwent treatment for his third bout of basal cell carcinoma in the space of 12 months. The actor’s rep has assured fans that Jackman is “all good” now following the treatment.
Jackman is urging everyone to ensure they protect their skin when out in the sun and recommends they speak to their doctor if they are unsure.
“The beauty of this is it’s all preventable, it’s just about getting proper check-ups,” he added.
“I can be typical man, a little lazy, I couldn’t be bothered and now I’m not lazy at all.”
