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?
Yes, can be removed: Moles can typically either be shaved off or cut out. While shaving typically removes the pigmented part of most raised moles it will not remove the hair follicles. Therefore, the mole can either be surgically removed which will leave a small scar or can be shaved followed by laser hair removal treatment of the remaining hairs.
