Wolverine heals himself, lives on for ages and his mutation makes him invincible. But the actor playing Logan isn't that lucky.
Heartthrob of millions of X-Men fans, Hugh Jackman was diagnosed with skin cancer some years ago but he overcame it with treatment. However, the actor has had many relapses.
In a recent bout, the star checked in with his fans on social media to reveal that he's undergoing treatment for basal cell carcinoma, again. It's the most common form of skin cancer, but rarely fatal.
The Australian actor has been previously treated for basal cell carcinoma at least four times. Last year, he posted a photo to his Facebook page with a similar image of a bandage over his nose. His treatment for basal cell carcinoma dates back to 2013.
More than 8 in 10 of the 3.3 million Americans diagnosed with skin cancer each year have basal cell carcinoma, according to the American Cancer Society. And Jackman, of all people, is from Australia- which has one of the highest incidences of skin cancer in the world.
The diagnosis hasn't slowed the actor down. Logan is all set for release on March 7 and promotions are under way while he is also gearing up for his stint as P.T. Barnum in the musical biopic The Greatest Showman on Earth, which is slated to open at the end of this year.
All we can say is GET WELL SOON Hugh!
