Hollywood heavyweight Hugh Jackman has given his fans another stern warning about the importance of wearing sunscreen.

Taking to his Instagram account, the actor took another opportunity to share an image that shows him with a bandaged nose, just hours after undergoing a procedure to remove a Basel Cell Carsinoma (BCC).

The 45-year-old, who had cancerous cells removed in November, again urged fans to protect themselves from the damaging rays of the sun/

"Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN! (sic)," he wrote alongside the snap.

"Huge thanks to Dr. Arian and Dr. Born for operating on my nose until 10:20pm! #SUNSCREEN (sic)."

It is the second time in months that Wolverine has been treated for the disease, the first being last year after his wife Deborra-Lee Furness - with whom he has children Oscar, 13, and Ava, seven, - urged him to get a "mark" on his nose checked out.

"Boy, was she right! I had basil cell carcinoma," he tweeted last year.

"Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!! (sic)"

Jackman will be in Australia next week to promote his next film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

He is then expected to head to Perth to launch the Jackman Furness Foundation for the Performing Arts ahead of fronting a cabaret performance at the WA Academy of Performing Arts in Mt Lawley on Saturday.
