Jackman treated for skin cancer

Hugh Jackman has revealed that he has been treated for skin cancer.

The X-Men actor broke the news on Instagram, explaining he was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma.

The Aussie star posted a picture of himself with a bandage on his nose, and said that he got checked out after his wife Deborra-Lee Furness urged him to see a doctor.

"Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma," he said.

Father-of-two Hugh, 45, also urged others to seek help if they had any concerns.

"Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!" he wrote.
