In brief: Hirsutism
Excessive hair is usually defined as a male-pattern.
This would include hair around the nipples, midline of the abdomen, inner thigh, arms, legs, back, buttock, face, chin, sideburns, upper lip.

In brief: Up to You
Hair growth varies between individuals and ethnic background does play a role.
If it bothers you then it is too much. A reproductive endocrinologist can help sort things out. The rate of growth is important and certainly when hair growth is coming quickly you should be evaluated asap.
