Jackman has cancer growth removed

Hugh Jackman has had another cancerous growth removed.

The 45-year-old actor attended the premiere of his latest film X-Men: Days of Future Past with a bandage over his nose. He said he had a basal-cell carcinoma removed two nights earlier.

Jackman said learned the results of a recent biopsy earlier on Thursday and had it removed straight afterwards.

Basal-cell carcinoma is a slow-growing form of skin cancer.

Jackman was treated for the same disease last year but said the prognosis was good: "It's all out now."

He urges others to "get check-ups and wear sunscreen".
