Expert San Diego Dermatologist Comments on Actor Hugh Jackman’s Recent Skin Cancer Scare
Date:11/29/2013

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2013

The public knows Australian actor Hugh Jackman for his movie roles as comic book superhero Wolverine, however, his recently announced cancer scare shows that he is not as invincible as his onscreen alter-ego. On his Instagram account, Hugh Jackman shared with his fans that he had a mark on his nose that his wife insisted he get inspected by a doctor. His wife’s concerns proved to be accurate as the actor was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer. According to Dr. Mitchel Goldman, director of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, Jackman’s diagnosis is not uncommon.

“Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and is easily treatable when diagnosed in its early stages,” explains Dr. Goldman, President of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

Basal cell carcinoma can lead to disfigurement if left untreated, but only in rare cases does it spread to other areas of the body. This type of skin cancer appears as a new pearly to reddish mole-like growth or a reddish patch on the skin that grows slowly over months and may bleed, which would explain why Jackman’s wife was concerned about the unusual mark on her husband’s nose. In his statement over Instagram, the actor encouraged his fans to get checked for skin cancer and to wear sunscreen when outside.

“Basal cell carcinoma is linked to prolonged sun exposure without protection. Everyone should be aware of the risks of being in the sun too long without covering your skin or wearing sunscreen. I applaud Mr. Jackman for encouraging healthy skin care habits,” states Dr
