Doctors found a basal cell carcinoma during a check up and the 48-year-old had a procedure to remove the growth.

"Everything's fine," he told Live! with Kelly on Thursday (02Mar17). "It is skin cancer but the least dangerous form of it, so it's just something I have to get out. After being an Aussie with English parents, growing up in Australia, it's sort of the new normal for me. But everything's fine. People have been so lovely, thank you."

"Wear sunscreen!" he added, serving up a warning to all, "and get a check-up! Here's the thing. One sunburn, you're susceptible to cancer. One. And all of this is 25, 30 years after, the doctor told me. Our rule, as kids, growing up, was you get burned and peel two or three times, then you're set. And that was your base coat. I mean, it was crazy."

The X-Men star was first diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma in 2013 and went public with the health scare by posting a photo of his bandaged nose on social media.
