Why is it that bad things happen to good people and the A-holes seem to coast through life without any problems?

The gentleman of the movie industry and all round Mr Nice Guy Hugh Jackman has had cancerous cells removed from nose.

Jackman explained that if it hadn’t been for his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, persuading him to see a doctor when a suspicious spot appeared on his nose, the situation could’ve become a lot worse.

Posting a picture of himself post-surgery on his Instagram account Jackman wrote, "Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma.”

The actor went on to urge fans to visit their doctor upon discovering any suspicious marks or spots. "Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"

I suspect that many of us will have, at some point, known someone in our lives that have battled this horrendous disease and so we all wish Mr Jackman well.
