Just a few days ago, Hugh Jackman filmed a video talking to his fans about his most recent cancer scare. Jackman previously had run-ins with skin cancer; basal cell carcinoma to be more precise. Now, according to healthcare experts, basal cell carcinoma is the least dangerous and most common kind of skin cancer. However, you definitely cannot take it lightly as it is quite prone to recurrence.

In his video, Jackman acknowledged the band-aid on his nose and stated that he had “two biopsies done. I just went to my doctor…and she just saw little things, could be or could not be basal cell in her opinion. I’ll find out in two or three days and as soon as I find out I’ll let you know.” He then reassured his fans about basal cell carcinoma being the least dangerous type of skin cancer. However, he urged everyone to not take sunscreen for granted.

And now for the moment of truth. Jackman took to his Instagram to share the results of his biopsies. He wrote in his story, “MY BIOPSIES CAME BACK NEGATIVE!!!” He added, “Thank you ALL for the love. I feel it! And to the media for helping get this very important message out.”

In the end, he once again requested the people watching his story to wear sunscreen with a high level of SPF. Jackman wrote, “PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR A SUNSCREEN WITH HIGH LEVEL OF SPF (NO MATTER THE SEASON) Love. HJ.”

Dermatologists recommend using sunscreen with a high level of SPF on your face. According to Cynthia Bailey, MD, a board-certified dermatologist, people should use broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF.

This isn’t the first time Jackman had a run-in with cancer. Back in 2013, the Logan actor was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma. He told PEOPLE that it’s “Always a bit of a shock just hearing the word ‘cancer.’” He added that despite being an Australian, he never wore sunscreen growing up, which he regrets.

The first time Jackman saw a spot on his nose, he thought it was simply the aftermath of one of his fight scenes from X-Men: Days of Future Past. When his makeup artist pointed it out, he stated, “Yeah, I know it was from a fight sequence and I knocked it somehow.” A week later, the spot wasn’t disappearing on its own and thus, his makeup artist pointed it out again.

This time Jackman stated that he might have rubbed it off in the shower after it dried up. Next week, the makeup artist told Jackman that he should get it checked. After his wife, Deborah-Lee Furness urged him, again and again, to get it checked, he finally paid a visit to the doctor and was diagnosed. Jackman had his first skin cancer removed in 2013. Ever since his diagnosis, he has been an advocate for the use of sunscreen.
