Hugh Jackman is being treated for skin cancer again.

The 48-year-old actor - who has already had several surgeries on his nose since being diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma in 2013 - shared a picture of himself on Twitter with a bandage, and revealed that doctors have found more of the non-melanoma cancer.

Hugh, who is now required to have his skin checked every three months, previously also had cancer removed from his shoulder and has been vocal about urging others to get checked.

He has said: "It's always a bit of a shock just hearing the word 'cancer'. Being an Australian, [skin cancer] is a very common thing. I never wore sunscreen growing up so I was a prime candidate for it.

"I was trying to keep calm about it... basal cell carcinoma is just something you have to deal with. It's cancerous. It will grow. You just have to get it out.

"I go every three months for checkups. 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."
