Hugh Jackman undergoes cancer treatment for the sixth time


Hollywood’s very own Wolverine, Hugh Jackman recently underwent his sixth cancer treatment on his nose. For all those who are unaware, the actor has been suffering from skin cancer for quite a while now and ever since he found out about this, he has been promoting the safety of skin to his fans. It is quite sad to learn that the actor who can punch up villains in movies has been suffering from such a terrible illness. Although he is getting better and with every cancer treatment, he bounces back for better, we just hope he goes away once and for all.

The 48-year-old actor is suffering from basal-cell carcinoma. The disorder is recurring in nature. According to science, it usually generates due to open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, or scars. The disease has its effects on the epidermis layer of skin. Although Jackman got it treated in its early stages, way back in November 2013, due to its recurring nature, it came back very recently. It has been stated that cancer can be killed once and for all but in certain cases, it makes an encore

He took to Instagram to make the announcement along with a pic as he captioned it, “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.” This is the sixth time he is being treated for skin cancer, despite having started the treatment for the same in its early stages.the actor underwent Mohs surgery. It is believed that Mohs is the most effective way of removing cancer but increases the chances of the illness recurring by just one percent. Let’s hope the actor recovers soon.

We’ll soon be seeing Hugh in Logan that is set to release in March. Any movie pertaining to Wolverine means awesomeness. There’s absolutely no one we can imagine, who’d do justice to Logan’s character. Being the last instalment to the X-Men franchise, so it is believed, this one is going to get a lot of love from fans across the globe! Heck, even we are super excited for the movie. The latest trailers just make the wait more difficult.
