William H Macy has revealed that he is recovering from treatment for skin cancer.

The Shameless actor recently underwent surgery for a cancerous spot on his nose. He appeared on Live! With Kelly on Tuesday (January 3) sporting a small plaster.

"I have many, many stories but the truth is I have a basal-cell (carcinoma) and I couldn't make any of the others work," he told host Kelly Ripa. "I did bar fight, I did damsel in distress and what I've come up with so far is, 'If you think I look bad, you should see the surgeon'."

He went on to say that the cancer was the result of a childhood spent in the sun.

"I'm Scots/Irish heritage and (that's what I get for) spending a misspent youth in Georgia with no sunscreen," Macy said.

In October, Macy revealed that he visited the set of a porn movie in preparation for his role in Boogie Nights.

The actor defended the portrayal of alcoholism in his Showtime series Shameless in June, claiming that drunk people can be "really funny sometimes".
