Looks as though Hugh Jackman has plenty more to celebrate than just the critical success of Logan and those incredible abs. Our number one Aussie mutant has undergone surgery for the sixth time to remove cancerous cells from his nose, proving you can't keep a Wolverine down.

Earlier this week, the 48-year-old actor shared a snap of himself on Instagram with a bandaged up nose, accrediting frequent body checks and amazing doctors as the reason he keeps finding and removing the basal cell carcinoma which can lead to skin cancer. He also urged followers to wear sunscreen.

Like himself, something as trivial as a life-threatening disease can't keep down. He further posted a video, also on his Instagram, wishing followers in Brazil a "feliz carnaval" and toasting to "Sade" (health) — something he's probably feeling even more grateful for these days.

This is the fifth time Jackman has had carcinomas removed from his nose; he's also had cells removed from his shoulder. Jackman's now cancer-free and promoting in London. It's great that him using his platform to inform his 10 million Twitter followers about this importance of regular checks and sun screen. Even superheroes can have a scare every now and then!

Let's have a toast to Hugh's health in the comments section!
