Jackman reveals skin cancer scare by posting photo online

Rachael Alexander Los Angeles

Star of 'The Wolverine' Hugh Jackman has revealed he has been treated for skin cancer – and shared a selfie showing his bandaged nose.

The photo caption on Instagram started: "Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right!"

Deb is his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, pictured above with the actor.

Oscar-nominated Jackman (45) said he had a basal cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer that is rarely fatal. He did not say when his medical treatment took place.

Australia has the highest skin cancer rate in the world, and two out of three Australians will be diagnosed before the age of 70.
