Hugh Jackman recently underwent a skin biopsy after his dermatologists noticed something “irregular.” On Sunday, he updated fans in an Instagram video saying that his test results came back inconclusive.
“Firstly, thank you everyone for your incredible support. I got so much support for the biopsy I just had,” he began. “I promised I’d keep you updated. It actually came back inconclusive which means they didn’t quite take enough because I am about to start filming so we didn’t want to go too deep.”
He continued, “They’re not that worried. What did come back makes them not worried. If it’s anything, it is a basal cell carcinoma which is not threatening really but needs to be taken care of.”
He told fans that he will follow up with another biopsy in two months and encouraged fans to get their skin checked.
“I know I’m repeating myself and will probably not stop … please get skin checks and wear sunscreen,” he told his followers. “Thank you all for so much support. I’m seeing your comments and stories. If by posting about this I remind one person to go see their dermatologist – I’m happy.”
