Los Angeles: 'The Wolverine' star Hugh Jackman has once again been treated for skin cancer on his nose.
It was the fourth procedure for Jackman, who took to Instagram to share a bandaged photo of himself.
"An example of what happens when you don't wear sunscreen. Basal Cell. The mildest form of cancer but serious, nonetheless. PLEASE USE SUNSCREEN and get regular check-ups," Jackman, 47, wrote as the caption.

The actor first came to know about basal-cell carcinoma in November 2013. He posted a photo online, saying his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, had encouraged him to get the 'mark' checked. He posted a second photo in May 2014, reported People.
The actor said going without the sunscreen in his childhood made him an easy target and he now gets himself checked after every three months.
