Read what Hugh said on his Instagram, and please do follow his advice about getting checked and protecting your skin.

Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil [sic] cell carcinoma. Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!

    Hi Hugh, your so right, I have had a few removed from my face and arms, you must get a check up every year, it is so important.
