Hugh Jackman on skin cancer scare: 'I'm all good!'
According to SunSmart, Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, owing to climate, the fair skin of a majority of its population, and high levels of UV radiation. Some 750,000 Australians are treated for the disease each year.
“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,” Dr. Goldman, President of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery told Newsday.
