Hugh Jackman has taken to Instagram to raise a glass to health after having cancer cut from his nose for the sixth time.

The Australian actor captioned the video ‘Thank you São Paulo, thank you Brazil. Happy Carnival! Health!

At the Friday night debut of Logan at the Berlin Film Festival, he said: “It is fine, it is all done, all fixed, all out. Thank you for asking.”

He recently had his sixth skin cancer removed and warned fans of the dangers of unprotected sun exposure.

With a bandage over his nose, the 48-year-old Wolverine actor posted to Twitter and Instagram to reveal that he was undergoing treatment for basal cell carcinoma, once again.

The Hollywood star posted a photo of himself showing a plaster across his nose.

He captioned the photo: “Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with dressing on than off. I swear!”

He first received treatment for basal cell carcinoma back in 2013.

Last year, he posted similar image with him a bandage over his nose to his Facebook page.

Basal cell carcinoma, also known as a BCC, is a type of skin cancer largely believed to be caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun or sun beds.

It’s the single most common form of skin cancer, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, with approximately three million cases diagnosed in the USA each year.

While it almost never spreads beyond the lesion site, it can be disfiguring if allowed to grow.

Jackman first had a cancer removed in 2013 after having a mole checked under the advice of his wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

He wrote at the time: “Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!”

Speaking to People in 2015, Jackman said growing up in Australia made him a ‘prime candidate’ for skin cancer, admitting he never wore sunscreen.

He said: “I go every three months for check-ups. It’s the new normal for me. My doctor says I’ll likely have more, and if that’s your cross to bear in life, you should be so lucky.”

What’s the take home message then?
