Jackman previously had a skin cancer removed, posting a picture in November 2013, also sporting a bandaged nose, with the caption, “Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!”

Deb referred to his wife, Deborra Lee-Furnace.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common kind of skin cancer, with almost 3 million cases in the United States every year. The American Cancer Society said basal and squamous cell skin cancers are most often found in areas exposed to the sun.
