Jesse Tyler Ferguson reveals he is being treated for cancer
Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson has revealed that he has received treatment for cancer.
The star posted on Instagram on Tuesday thanking doctors for treatment.
It showed him with a bandage on his face, and read: “[Thank you] for taking the cancer out of my face.”
He also joked that the Modern Family hair and makeup team would have to work to cover up the stitches.
The 40-year-old did not disclose any more information about his treatment.
He recently celebrated his second anniversary of marriage with husband Justin Mikita.
Last year, Ferguson denied claims by a Desperate Housewives actor that camp gay characters are “like blackface”.
Tuc Watkins has retracted his claims that stereotypical gay characters are like blackface.
Mr Watkins – who previously played gay character Bob Hunter on Desperate Housewives – laid into Modern Family’s gay dads Mitch and Cam on Facebook.
