Hugh Jackman has another cancerous growth removed
NEW YORK—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” Saturday with a bandage over his nose. He told The Associated Press he had a basal-cell carcinoma removed two nights earlier.
Jackman said he learned the results of a recent biopsy earlier on Thursday and had it removed right after.
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 checkups and wear sunscreen.”
