has had a cancerous growth removed from his nose, he announced this week.
The X-Men: Days Of Future Past thesp posted a photo of his face with a bandage on his nose on his Instagram page, saying his other half, , had told him to get his nose checked, and he had been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma.
He commented: "Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"
Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and accounts for more than 90% of skin cancer patients in America. The cancer doesn't often spread but if it's not removed then it can damage the surrounding tissue.
I'm glad he was treated successfully and hope that he continues to educate people about health. Leave your words of support for Hugh in the comment section below!
