Hugh Jackman is taking no chance after undergoing treatment for a second bout of skin cancer.

'The Wolverine' star, however, was in good spirits as he sported a bandage on the side of his nose during the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' premiere in New York City, reported People magazine.

The 45-year-old actor took the opportunity to call out to his fans to get regular check-ups and wear sunscreen.

Asked how his face was doing, he said, "My face It's fine, it's good. Thank you for asking. I have a few stitches, I had a basal cell carcinoma taken out.

"Tell all your readers: get check ups, wear sunscreen. It's all about prevention."

Jackman confirmed the cancer "is out, it's fixed, and I'll get myself checked up. It's all about catching these things early."
