Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman, who has recently got his sixth treatment for skin cancer, has urged people to use sunscreen.

The 48-year-old "Wolverine" star took to Instagram on Monday to share a selfie of himself after being treated for skin cancer on his nose, reported etonline.com.

"Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent checks and amazing doctors, all's well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off! Wear sunscreen," he captioned the image.

The actor was first treated for basal-cell carcinoma in November 2013.

He posted a photo online, saying his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, had encouraged him to get the 'mark' checked.
