Hugh Jackman battling skin cancer for the fourth time




Wear your sunscreen, kids. That’s the message Hugh Jackman keeps trying to send every time he posts a selfie documenting his ongoing battle with skin cancer.

The 47-year-old actor revealed his fourth bout with the illness in a Facebook post on Monday that showed a bandage over his nose.

“An example of what happens when you don’t use sunscreen,” he wrote. “Basal cell. The mildest form of cancer. PLEASE WEAR SUNSCREEN and get check ups regularly!”

Jackman has been treated for basal cell carcinoma four times since 2013. It’s the most common form of skin cancer and is rarely fatal.
