Kenny Rogers had a small scuffle with skin cancer, according to a picture he posted Wednesday on Instagram.
"...but you should see the other guy!," the legendary country singer said in his caption. "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 this weekend!"
The photo shows a big bandage going from forehead to cheek, on the right side of Rogers' face. He didn't identify the type of cancer that was removed.
Previously, his mug had been more famous for the plastic surgery he'd had done on it. But it was a topic he and his publisher chose to keep out of his 2012 memoir, he told Fox 411 at the time, because they feared that would be the only thing people would talk about.
Also doing battle recently on the skin-cancer front was actor Hugh Jackman, who had a second basal cell carcinoma removed from the side of his nose just days before the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" premiere in New York.
