Hugh Jackman shared the news via Instagram that he was diagnosed with skin cancer and had to have some skin on his nose removed. The photo bears the caption: "Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!" Basil-cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and is rarely fatal. However, it can cause disfigurement to the skin and should be removed.
