Hugh’s By No Means A Prime Candidate For Skin Cancer

hugh jackman 5th bcc
As reported here, Hugh Jackman has previously had 4 Basal Cell Carcinomas removed from his shoulder.

The world is full of celebrities that just want to milk the limelight and give nothing back, particularly wanting to appear bullet-proof and “special”. So the fact that Hugh is going public with his skin cancer issues in order to highlight the necessity to get regular check ups is to be applauded. Hugh is 47 and his life in the sun would be very similar to most other people here in Queensland. He probably played sport,surfed,worked outdoors with limited sun protection either from sun cream, a wide brimmed hat or clothing. He grew up in an era where the effects of the Australian sun were not fully understood and his recent skin cancer discoveries are a result of that period of overexposing his skin to the sun.

Hugh has just gone public again with his 5th melanoma removal and again reiterated the need for regular checkups, the ABC report is here. The Queensland sun is the most harmful within Australia hence it is the skin cancer capital of the world, Hugh grew up in NSW and even has some Greek blood(olive skin DNA) so he is by no means a prime candidate for skin cancer.
