For many years, Australian actor Hugh Jackman has been struggling with a serious illness. Once the star of "Wolverine" was given a disappointing diagnosis - skin cancer and now he controls all neoplasms on his body, periodically getting rid of them surgically.
Jackman has already undergone four operations to remove the malignant tumor. The other day, the actor said that he underwent another surgical intervention.
On his Instagram page, Hugh posted a photo showing him with a plaster on his nose. Note that it is this part of the actor's face that the disease affects most often.
Jackman left a comment under the picture, in which he reminded fans of the importance of using sunscreen: “Another carcinoma. Thanks for the prompt examination and amazing doctors. Everything is fine, although you can't tell from the photo. Use sun protection!"
By the way, Jackman is not so afraid of the diagnosis that he was given. “The word cancer is always shocking. This is a fairly common diagnosis in Australia. When I was little, I never used sun protection, so I was constantly at risk,”Hugh said in 2015.
Reference: Basal cell carcinoma (a malignant tumor that develops from the lower layer of the epidermis) appears precisely on those areas of the skin that are most and longest under the scorching sun.
