Hugh Jackman has had another skin cancer scare after discovering a growth on his nose.

Less than six months after the Les Miserables star underwent surgery on a basal cell carcinoma, Jackman has revealed he has had another procedure.

Posting a photo of his bandaged nose on Instagram.com on Thursday, the bearded actor wrote, "Another Basel Cell Carsinoma (sic). All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!."

Last year, the star's actress wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, encouraged him to see a dermatologist and get the "mark" on his nose checked. He finally agreed and discovered the cancer.

After surgery in November, he said, "I’m feeling relieved, it’s good, cancer's all out and I'm very very grateful to my beautiful wife who forced me to go and get a check-up... Typical man, I was like, 'Oh I’ll go next week'.

"The whole time, I thought it was not much, but only afterwards did they say, 'You’re really lucky you got it checked out now.' "
