Ewan McGregor's Cancer Scare

Actor Ewan McGregor says he is "fine" after having a cancerous mole removed from just below his right eye.

The 37-year-old, best known for the Star Wars prequels and Trainspotting, said doctors removed several moles on after he went for a check-up.

"I went to see a specialist who thought they were better to be removed, and indeed he was correct," he said.

McGregor, who is promoting the erotic thriller Deception, insisted the surgery was "not that big of a deal".

The star admitted he was aware that having pale skin and spending time in the sun meant he was more at risk, and it "was best to be looked at" by doctors.
