Hugh Jackman has had another cancerous growth removed.
The 45-year-old actor attended the premiere of his latest film X-Men: Days of Future Past with a bandage over his nose. He said he had a basal-cell carcinoma removed two nights earlier.
Jackman said learned the results of a recent biopsy earlier on Thursday and had it removed straight afterwards.
Basal-cell carcinoma is a slow-growing form of skin cancer.
Jackman was treated for the same disease last year but said the prognosis was good: "It's all out now."
He urges others to "get check-ups and wear sunscreen".
