Jackman said he learned the results of a recent biopsy earlier on Thursday, and had it removed right after. Basal-cell carcinoma is a slow-growing form of skin cancer and Jackman was treated for the same disease last year. The actor said "It's all out now" but urged others to "get checkups and wear sunscreen".
