Jesse Tyler Ferguson Shows Bandaged Neck After Having Skin Cancer Removed
The former ‘Modern Family’ actor urges his online devotees to get their skin checked as he reveals he discovered ‘a bit of skin cancer’ on his neck during dermatologist appointment.
AceShowbiz –Jesse Tyler Ferguson has warned fans to “stay up to date” on dermatologist appointments after having to have a “bit of skin cancer” removed from his neck.
The “Modern Family” star shared an image to his Instagram page in which he was seen with a small bandage on his neck as he wrote, “Reminder to stay up to date on your dermatology checks… especially if you’re fair like me. I always wind up getting something taken from me, every time I go. Today, they took a bit of skin cancer that they found.”
Predicting the concern he’d undoubtedly receive from worried fans, Jesse added, “Don’t worry, I got it early and I’m gonna be just fine. (and, wear sunscreen! SPF 1000 for me!)”
Zooey Deschanel was among those commenting on Jesse’s post, writing, “SPF one million!!! And hats- so many hats!”
While his husband Justin Mikita adorably added, “Gotta keep you around forever. Derm appointments once a month!”
Besides Jesse Tyler Ferguson, fellow stars Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman also had skin cancer.
In 2014, “Logan” actor Jackman was treated for skin cancer for the second time on the same part of his nose. “[Wife] Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma,” he revealed back then, adding that fans needed to take cautionary protection by using sunscreen.
“Big Little Lies” star Kidman opened up about her health issues last year, “I’ve had skin cancer. Do I wish I’d been more careful with the sun? Yes, to all those things.”
“The Bachelorette” alum Ali Fedotowsky also told her fans early last year, “GET YOUR SKIN CHECKED. A couple weeks ago I found out I have skin cancer. When my dermatologist used the c-word, I just about fainted in his office. Thankfully, the type of skin cancer I have is rarely fatal and really never fatal when you catch it early. It’s called Basal cell carcinoma.”
