Hugh Jackman has revealed that he had a skin cancer scare.

The Australian actor shared on Twitter that his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, encouraged him to get the mark on his nose checked, which turned out to be a basal cell carcinoma cancer.

“Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!” the star added, posting a photo of himself with a bandage on his nose.
