Poor Hugh Jackman!

On Monday, the Wolverine star took to Instagram to share a snap of himself (above) wearing a pretty large band-aid after having ANOTHER skin cancer removal procedure. Yikes!

The Australian actor wrote:

“An example of what happens when you don’t wear sunscreen. Basal Cell. The mildest form of cancer but serious, nonetheless. PLEASE USE SUNSCREEN and get regular check-ups.”

Oof! The 47-year-old is most certainly not messing around — especially since this is his fifth procedure in two years.

In fact, it was just last May that the A-lister opened up about how he had four skin cancer scares in 18 months and that he’d likely be susceptible to more. Crazy!

Luckily, the Hollywood hunk is proactive and gets a check up every three months. Here’s hoping this will be the last of the discovered cancer cells on Hugh.

Feel better, bro!
