Hugh Jackman has been treated for skin cancer for a third time.
The 46-year-old actor was recently pictured with another bandage on his nose and his representatives confirmed to E! News he has been treated for Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC).
Hugh Jackman’s representatives say he’s “all good” after the procedure.
BCC is a slow-growing skin cancer and is linked to sun exposure.
It accounts for about 75% of skin cancers but rarely kills.

Last night, Hugh Jackman tweeted: “Sunscreen” with a picture reference to Baz Luhrmann’s 1998 song Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen.
Hugh Jackman first revealed he was diagnosed with BCC in November, when he posted a picture of himself online after a similar procedure.
At the time, the actor said his prognosis was good and pleaded with fans to stay protected from the sun.
He then had more cancerous cells removed in May.
Hugh Jackman has recently said he believes he’ll have many many more scares but claims it’s the most “minor” of all the skin cancers.
His wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, first persuaded him to get the mark on his nose checked by a doctor.
Surgery is the main treatment for BCC. If left untreated, it doesn’t usually spread to other parts of the body, but it can damage or disfigure surrounding tissue.

Les Miserables star Hugh Jackman has decided to pull out of a new Broadway musical about Harry Houdini in which he was to have played the famed illusionist.
Hugh Jackman cited scheduling demands as the reason for his departure, saying he “wasn’t able to commit to the time this role will require”.
“I have tremendous respect and admiration for the creative team and I wish everyone the best,” the actor continued.

“I know they’re well on their way to making something extraordinary.”
Producer Scott Sanders said Hugh Jackman had been “terrific to have on this part of our journey”.
“We will continue to move forward with our remarkable creative team as they craft this ambitious new musical,” he said.
First mooted in 2008, the long-gestating Houdini musical had been on track for a 2014 premiere before Hugh Jackman’s exit.
Danny Elfman, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz are among those to have been involved in the project over the past five years.
Hugh Jackman was recently seen in the film version of Les Miserables, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award.

Hugh Jackman, who was nominated for an Oscar last year for his performance as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, said his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, had told him to seek medical advice.
“Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right!”
Hugh Jackman did not say when he was diagnosed or what treatment he received, but said that anyone with concerns should seek medical advice.
BCC produces cancerous cells on the surface of the skin. Surgery is the main treatment. If left untreated, it rarely spreads to other parts of the body, but it can damage or disfigure surrounding tissue.

Anne Hathaway has been on a strict diet in a bit to lose weight to play the role of dying prostitute Fantine in the movie adaptation of Les Miserables.
Anne Hathaway, 29, displayed the results of the regime, which saw her consuming just 500 calories a day – significantly less than the recommended daily allowance of 2,000 calories a day – as she shot scenes for the movie alongside Hugh Jackman in London.
The actress was seen wearing a pale lilac short-sleeved dress as she shot the scenes on the balcony location, standing next to Hugh Jackman – who sported unruly grey hair for his part.
Anne Hathaway’ once-lustrous long brown hair had also been replaced by a blunt crop, necessary for the role of the hungry, dying prostitute.
It is believed that Anne Hathaway has lost around 16 lbs in just three weeks in preparation for the beginning of shooting.

A source told the Daily Mirror earlier this month: “Anne is playing a destitute factory worker-come-lady of the night.
“Unfortunately, she only has 15 to 20 days to lose as much weight as possible – up to a stone-and-a-half – because she’s been filming the scenes showing her fit and healthy, almost slightly chubby.
“It’s not ideal but, as with any high-budget movie, there are strict time constraints.
“Producers have assigned her a personal trainer and she is literally eating nothing more than a couple of apples a day, and some protein – mainly in the form of a shake.”
However, producers are said to be making sure doctors keep a close eye on the actress during the short-term diet.
Meanwhile, in the movie Hugh Jackman is playing Jean Valjean, a poor man on the run from the police after he was released from prison after a 19 year stretch for stealing bread for his family.
The character is being pursued by Russell Crowe’s Inspector Javert, who released Valjean on parole, but then later decided to dedicate his life to imprisoning him again.
The film also stars Irish tenor Colm Wilkinson, who appears as the Bishop of Digne and was the original Jean Valjean in the West End and Broadway musical productions.
And it has quite the stellar cast as well as Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, with Eddie Redmayne as Marius Pontmercy, Amanda Seyfried as Cosette, Sacha Baron Cohen as Thénardier, and Helena Bonham Carter as Madame Thénardier.
