Australian actor and Hollywood star of the X-Men series (among others), Hugh "Wolverine" Jackman, has never shied away from talking about having skin cancer.


He suffers from a mild form of cancer called  –  Basal Cell carcinoma.  Social-media savvy Jackman tweeted, and posted a photo of himself post his cancer treatment on Instagram and urged his fans and others to use sunscreen. 

 

 


 

This was his sixth time removing the cancer.  

It was in 2013 he discovered he had this mild form of cancer, and it was thanks to his wife who asked him to have it checked out.
