Country music icon Kenny Rogers is recovering after undergoing surgery to remove a skin cancer growth from his face.

The 75-year-old took to his Instagram account on Wednesday and posted a photo of himself with a bandage on the right side of his head.

Eager to tell his fans he’s on the mend and ready to head back on the road for his current tour, he wrote, “…but you should see the other guy! Had a bit of skin cancer removed today – I recommend everyone go get checked, especially since May is National Skin Cancer Detection & Prevention Month. Don’t worry though, I’m gonna look great in Knoxville (Tennessee) this weekend!”

Rogers isn’t the only celebrity who has gone public with a skin cancer scare this month – last week, Wolverine star Hugh Jackman had his second skin cancer scare in six months after discovering a growth on his nose.

He also took to social media to encourage fans to take better care of their skin and wrote, “Another Basel Cell Carsinoma (sic). All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!.
