Taking to Instagram on Monday, the X Men star told fans about his latest skin checks, dispensed advice, and explained his latest treatment. He captioned a video he shared: “A couple of notes ... please get skin checks often, please don't think it won't happen to you and, above all, please wear sunscreen.”

In the footage, he showed himself wearing a PPE face mask which he removed to reveal he had a plaster on his nose.In the video, he said: “I just went to see Lisa and Trevor, my amazing dermatologist and doctors. “They saw something that was a little irregular so they took a biopsy, getting it checked.

“Thank you for your concern. I'll let you know what's going on but they think it's probably fine.”He added: “Remember, go and get a check and wear sunscreen. Don't be like me as a kid. Just wear sunscreen.”Hugh was first diagnosed with skin cancer in 2013 after doctors discovered basal-cell carcinoma on his nose.

His most recent treatment for the disease was in 2015. Speaking about his treatments and diagnoses to People Magazine in the past, Hugh said: “It's always a bit of a shock just hearing the word 'cancer.’”Being an Australian it's a very common thing. I never wore sunscreen growing up so I was a prime candidate for it."

Basal-cell carcinoma is a type of non-melanoma skin cancer which the NHS say can appear: “as a small, shiny pink or pearly-white lump with a translucent or waxy appearance. It can also look like a red, scaly patch.”The lump can get bigger, become crusty, develop into a painless ulcer, or start to bleed – and it is recommended anyone with such a mark on their skin seek medical advice.

The NHS also notes: “Non-melanoma skin cancer most often develops on areas of skin regularly exposed to the sun, such as the face, ears, hands, shoulders, upper chest and back.”While treatment can include surgery, radiotherapy, cryotherapy, photodynamic therapy, or the use of anti-cancer creams. headtopics.com
