Hugh Jackman has shared an urgent health warning with fans after yet another skin cancer scare.
The Aussie star took to social media on Tuesday morning to reveal he'd seen doctors about a mark on his nose and urged fans to keep an eye out for signs of skin cancer.

Taking to his Instagram, Hugh, 52, shared a video of himself mask-clad and with an important message.
Revealing that he had just exited the dermatologist, the actor explained what exactly has been going on with regards to his health.
"They saw something that was a little irregular so they took a biopsy," the 52-year-old clarified.
He then pulled down his mask to show a small bandage over his nose where the procedure had been performed.
"Getting it checked, so if you see a shot of me with this on do not freak out; thank you for your concern. I'll let you know what's going on but they think it's probably fine."
The Wolverine actor went on to deliver an important reminder to his fans when it comes to caring for their skin.
"But just remember, go and get it checked, and wear sunscreen. Don't be like me as a kid, wear sunscreen."
This isn't the first time Hugh has had this type of health scare.
Back in 2017, the Greatest Showman actor had a cancer removed from his face - the sixth one in two years.

Posting a photo on Instagram at the time, the star delivered a similar message about wearing sunscreen.
"Another basal cell carcinoma," he wrote. "Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear! #wearsunscreen."
