"Another Basal Cell Carcinoma," the 'X-Men: Days of Future past' actor captioned the snap. "All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. Please! Please! Wear Sunscreen!"

Jackman's concerned fans immediately began commenting on the photo, sending him their well wishes, as well as praising him for the advice.

"Good on u putting ur health first and encouraging everyone to do the same," one follower wrote, with another adding, "Get well soon, sorry to hear this."
