A Biopsy for Suspicious Cells
Hugh Jackman offers a public health warning on skin cancer after another scare. The actor has just had two biopsies done and informs people on social media his story. He credits a dermatologist, Dr. Iron for having removed the suspicious cells. However, the star of “Wolverine” and “The Music Man” discloses that it could be or couldn’t be basal cell.
A Public Service Announcement
Jackman wears a bandage on his nose as he urges viewers to take precautions against skin cancer. He advises people to wear sunscreen because it is not worth the trouble if they want to establish a tan. Jane Yoo, a dermatologist, and spokesman for the Skin Cancer Foundation lauds Jackman’s initiative as it could inspire men to get yearly skin cancer checks. She acknowledges that while women are usually receptive to such checks, men, on the other hand, need some jabbing.
Prevention Tips for Everyone
Dr. Yoo offers some advice to everyone, including those with dark skin tones, as they aren’t exempted from skin cancer. Yoo recommends wearing sunscreen with an SPF rating of at least 30, seeking shade during peak hours, and covering up with clothing like hats, long-sleeved shirts, and pants when possible. People can take precautions to reduce their skin cancer risk by following these tips.
