NEW YORK, May 9 (UPI) -- Australian actor Hugh Jackman announced via Twitter he has undergone another procedure to treat skin cancer on his face.

"Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!" he tweeted Thursday with a link to an Instagram photo of himself with a bandage on his nose.

The 45-year-old actor, who is now on the promotion trail for his film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, underwent a similar procedure last November.
