Jesse Tyler Ferguson Reveals Skin Cancer Scare
Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson underwent surgery after doctors found skin cancer on his face. The 40-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday to share the news, posting a photo of himself with a bandage and gauze on his cheek.
“Thank you to Dr. Bennett & his entire team for taking the cancer out of my face,” Ferguson wrote. “Good luck hiding the stitches tomorrow @modernfamily_makeuphair! #youwannaapieceofme #phantommask #spf75.” The actor did not reveal any further details of his diagnosis or the procedure. Ferguson has long been a supporter of charity organization Stand Up to Cancer, since a number of his close friends and family have battled the disease, including his husband Justin Mikita and co-star Sofia Vergara. “He was diagnosed when he was 13 and that’s sort of an age when you don’t really realize what’s going on,” Ferguson previously explained to E! News. “He goes in once a year for his check-up to make sure he’s still cancer free so he’s always reminded of it.”
