Hollywood star Hugh Jackman has revealed that he removed yet another Basal-cell carcinoma from his nose. Less than six months after the X-Men star underwent surgery on a Basal cell carcinoma, Jackman has revealed he has had another procedure, reported E!Online.

Posting a photo of his bandaged nose on Instagram on May 8, the 45-year-old Australian actor wrote, "Another Basel Cell Carsinoma (sic). All out now. Thanks Dr Albom and Dr Arian. Please! Please! Wear Sunscreen!."

A Basal-cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and is usually entirely treatable, though it can spread and cause damage to surrounding tissue. Jackman also had one removed in November.

The 45-year-old star, who is promoting his latest film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, says he's already started rehearsals for the Tonys, but doubts his X-Men character Wolverine will be making an appearance on the award show. "I'm not sure Fox will be thrilled if Wolverine came out singing and dancing," he joked.
