Hugh Jackman Treated for Skin Cancer

SunBuddy Back Lotion Applicator - Hugh Jackman Treated for Skin Cancer

Australian-born 45-year-old actor Hugh Jackman, famously known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men film series, was treated for skin cancer on his nose. You can see a band-aid on Jackman's nose in the photo above.

Jackman tweeted, "I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"

Men more likely to die from skin cancer

The latest research from Cancer Center UK found that men are 70% more likely to die from skin cancer than women. Now fine after having surgery to remove the cancer spot, Jackman’s early detection could have saved his life.

New York City Dermatologist Ellen Marmur says that left untreated, his trouble spot could have been a much bigger deal. "The biggest misconception is that basal cell cancers are benign. It can metastasize--in fact, I've removed ears, lips, and halves of noses from this kind of cancer."

Warning signs

Marmur says it usually looks like a small pimple on the face that doesn't go away. "A classic sign is if the same spot bleeds every time you shave... Basal cell pops up most often on eyelids, nose, lips, and ears, and melanoma often shows up on men's backs and hands."

As always, follow these simple steps to keep skin cancer free:

  • Wear sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30 everyday. Use the SunBuddy® - Back Lotion Applicator to apply sunscreen to your back and to hard to reach areas of your body.
  • Check for skin every month for suspicious irregular shaped moles.  Keep track of ones that seem to grow.
  • Wear hats and sunglasses.  Your eyes need protection from UV rays too.
  • Seem a dermatologist once a year.
