Jesse Tyler Ferguson Removes Cancer From His Face

Celebrity Cancer Survivors
These celebrities kicked cancer right in the butt.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson is in good spirits after undergoing treatment for cancer.

The Modern Family star revealed on Tuesday (Dec. 8, 2015) that he had recently underwent a procedure to remove a bit of cancerous skin from his face. Sharing a photo of his partially bandaged mug, the 40-year-old actor thanked his doctors — and even cracked a joke — for helping him throughout the treatment process.

“Thank you to Dr. Bennett & his entire team for taking the cancer out of my face. Good luck hiding the stitches tomorrow @modernfamily_makeuphair! #youwannaapieceofme #phantommask #spf75,” he wrote.

Though Ferguson did not elaborate on the type or severity of his cancer, his hashtags suggested that he was dealing with skin cancer. Ferguson later shared a photo with his onscreen family after returning to work.
