Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Hugh Jackman , best known for his “Wolverine” movie, underwent another skin cancer treatment and he took to his social media accounts to talk about it.

His latest visit to the doctor prompted him to warn people about not wearing sunscreen as he posted a photo showing him after he got another skin cancer treatment.

The actor posted a photo of him with a bandage on his nose. The snap was posted on his Twitter account as well as on his Instagram . He is currently undergoing treatment for basal cell carcinoma. The cancer is the most common form of skin cancer but is not the leading cause of death concerning skin cancer.

For the caption, Jackman wrote, "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! #wearsunscreen.” The actor has undergone four treatments for the skin cancer and he started getting them since 2013. Last year, he posted a similar photo of him with a bandage over his nose.

Although the actor has basal cell carcinoma, he continued to take on projects. His latest is “Logan,” which is the third installment of the X-Men franchise. The movie is set to hit theaters this march. He is also set to star in the musical biopic called “The Greatest Showman on Earth.” This movie will be out by the end of 2017.

Basal cell carcinoma means a change in the skin such as having a sore that does not heal. The growth of a bump, which is usually skin-colored, pearly white, or pink is also an indication of skin cancer. Normally, the bumps appear on the face, ears, or neck.

The factors that increase the risk of getting this type of skin cancer is spending a lot of time in the sun or undergoing radiation therapy. People with lighter skin, red or blonde hair, and light-colored eyes also have greater risk of getting basal cell carcinoma. More than eight in 10 of the 3.3 million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer each year.
