Hugh Jackman reveals he is cancer-free

Hugh Jackman reveals he is cancer-free!

The Hollywood actor added to his update: "Thank you all for love. I feel it! And to the media for helping me get this very important message out."

"Please remember to wear sunscreen with a high level of SPF (no matter the season). Love HJ."

Jackman is committed to raising awareness by using social media to discuss his skin cancer history. In his post, he explains “I know you’ve heard me talk about my basal cell carcinomas. I’m going to keep taking about them. And if it reminds even one person to put on sunscreen, then I’m happy.”

In 2017, the last time Jackman dealt with basal cell carcinoma (BCC), he posted a photo of himself on Instagram showing the aftermath of skin cancer surgery. He assured fans he was okay in his post’s caption, thanking frequent skin checks and amazing doctors.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer, with more than 3.6 million cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year. BCC almost never spreads beyond the original tumor site though, and the cure rate after excisional surgery is above 95 percent in most body areas. So, is this form of cancer even something to worry about?

Wearing a plaster on the end of his nose, the 54-year-old actor, known for films including The Greatest Showman, Logan and Les Miserables, said: "I wanted you to hear it from me, just in case someone sees me on the street or whatever."

He said his cancer was a result of "stuff that happened 25 years ago [that] is coming out now", and again took the chance to urge people to wear sun cream, saying: "Put some sunscreen on. You'll still have an incredible time out there. All right. Please be safe."
