6yr old child has 5mm raised mole. Present for many years. Mole is light - medium brown with pin head size darker area. Over last month no changes. Hair in mole is this a cause for worry.

Leave it alone. There's nothing to suggest malignancy. Hair present actually speaks against an concern. Show the physician on the next visit. All pigmented lesions in kids do need to be checked; i'm glad you're monitoring it closely.
No Don't worry. All the pigmented moles need close monitoring . Hairy nevus has very low malignant transformation, especially on 6 yr old excision is advised mostly for cosmetic reason .
