Hugh Jackman has been treated for skin cancer for the second time and he believes there's a chance it will reappear at some point in the future again.
Hugh Jackman believes he'll have ''many more'' skin cancer scares in the future.
The Australian actor underwent a procedure to remove a Basel Cell Carsinoma (BCC) from the side of his nose last Friday (09.05.14), but he's expecting the disease to make a return some time soon.
Speaking at the Beijing, China, premiere of 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past', he told Associated Press: ''I'm realistic about the future and it's more than likely that I'll have at least one more but probably many more, which is not uncommon for an Aussie particularly from English stock growing up in Australia where I don't remember ever being told to put sunscreen on.''
However, the 'Wolverine' star - who also had cancerous cells removed in November last year - is trying to remain positive about his health and is attending regular medical check-ups.
He added: ''The beauty of this is it's all preventable, it's just about getting proper check-ups.
''I can be typical man, a little lazy, I couldn't be bothered and now I'm not lazy at all.''
BCC is a treatable and common form of skin cancer signified by lesions or growths on the outermost layer of the skin that ''often look like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, or scars'' and are ''usually caused by a combination of cumulative UV exposure and intense, occasional UV exposure, the Skin Cancer Foundation says.
Although it generally doesn't spread, the organisation warn that it can be disfiguring if not treated quickly.
The 45-year-old actor has urged his fans to protect their skin from the damaging rays of the sun and to seek a medical opinion as soon as abnormalities appear.
