Pictured: Hugh Jackman’s SIXTH brush with skin cancer

HOLLYWOOD superstar Hugh Jackman has had his sixth skin cancer removed.

The X-Men star posted a photograph on Instagram showing him with a plaster across his nose.

The Aussie actor told his 9.7 million followers: ‘Another basal cell carcinoma.

‘Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well.

‘Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear!’

Jackman, 48, warned people to protect themselves from the sun, adding the hashtag ‘#wearsunscreen’.

The father-of-two had his first skin cancer removed in 2013 after his actress wife Deborra-Lee Furness suggested he should get a mole on his nose checked.

He wrote on social media at the time: ‘Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right!

‘I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!’

Jackman’s fifth skin cancer was removed in February last year.
