Los Angeles, May 14 (IANS) Actor Hugh Jackman, who was treated for skin cancer for the second time, believes there`s a chance it will reappear at some point in future again.

The 45-year-old, who underwent a surgery May 9 to get a Basel Cell Carsinoma (BCC) from the side of his nose removed, said he feels the disease will make a return some time soon, reports contactmusic.com.

"I`m realistic about the future and it`s more than likely that I`ll have at least one more, but probably many more, which is not uncommon for an Australian, particularly from English stock growing up in Australia where I don`t remember ever being told to put sunscreen on," said Jackman.

However, the "Wolverine" star is trying to remain positive about his health and is attending regular medical check-ups.

"The beauty of this is it`s all preventable, it`s just about getting proper check-ups. I can be typical man, a little lazy, I couldn`t be bothered and now I`m not lazy at all," he said.
