Hugh Jackman is sharing his second skin cancer scare with fans, urging them to be safe about exposing their skin to the sun.

The Oscar-winning actor took to his Instagram page to share a photo of himself with a bandage over his nose.

“Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!” he wrote.

In November 2013, the X-Men: Days of Future Past star revealed a similar picture.

At the time, he told fans his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, urged him to get his nose checked out after she noticed a mark on him.

“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!!!” he said.

In addition to appearing as Wolverine in X-Men starting May 23, Jackman will also host the Tony Awards on June 8.
