Hugh Jackman isn't the only celebrity urging people to get their skin checked out by a doctor.

He continued, "Had a bit of skin cancer removed today -- I recommend everyone go get checked, especially since May is National Skin Cancer Detection & Prevention Month. Don't worry though, I'm gonna look great in Knoxville this weekend!"

Last week, Jackman also posted to social media, asking fans to get their skin check and wear sunscreen. Jackman's cancer was on his nose.
