Hair Growing Out Of A Mole
I accidentally nicked off a newer mole. Grew back a small pink bump. Do basal cell growths usually have hair growing out of them?
I have a mole on my chin which I get hair growing so I have to pluck them out which is quite painful so would I be able to get it removed?
A mole on back that recently changed from black to pinkish black, raised and larger than before with a hair growing out it. Should I be concerned?
If it has a hair: It is most likely benign, but I can't be sure. No one can be sure, but a dermatologist can have a good idea by careful exam. Show it to a doctor to make sure. Read more
Skin coloured mole on face I have been plucking it for about a year it have stopped growing hairs no other changes. Could this still a benign mole?
Do not pluck: Leave the mole alone. It is most likely benign. If it is a cosmetic issue, you may have it removed. If not you may watch and wait. If the mole doubles in size, becomes irregular in size, shape or color, bleeds, ulcerates or develops a nodule, see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more
Last time I cut a single long hair growing from my regularly looking mole (pencil eraser-size) it didn't grow back unlike previous times. Is this bad?
No: Do not worry about the hair. If the mole doubles in size, becomes irregular in size, shape or color, bleeds, ulcerates or develops a nodule, see a doctor.

Concerned - reoccurring mole hair cancerous? Appears normal in size and colour and hasn't grown but the black hair in it keeps growing - female, POCS
Hairy mole: In general, "moles" should be checked by experienced practitioners and biopsied or followed if necessary. Hair, growing or not, doesn't usually enter into it. Although most melanoma and basal cell neoplasms do not grow hair, some dark hairy patches can be serious, see: http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/1295033-overview Read more
I have a mole that has hairs that grow out of it so I pluck them, it also has recently developed a zit in it which I also popped. Any concerns?
Not really: This does sound like a troublesome benign nevus (I'm assuming it's stable) and you're welcome to have it removed. Read more
I had a mole on my temple until my 16th. It disappeared and grey hairs started growing from there. Mole is gone and grey hairs are still there, normal?
Probably: The pigment that causes malls to be dark is called melon. It sounds like the mole lost the ability to produce melanin and that's why it "disappeared". This is also likely why the hairs are gray because there's no normal color. If you have not already seen a dermatologist, I would go see one just to make sure that it's not something that needs to be addressed. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Coincedence: Moles are collections of cells called melanocytes that grow in the dermis, the firm connective tissue part of the skin, or at the level of the border between the top layers of skin, the epidermis, and the dermis. Sometimes these collections arise in the vicinity of hair shafts and it appears that the mole is growing hair. Read more
