Thanks for asking question on HCM,
causes of breast hair could be
Medications such as phenytoin, minoxidil, diazoxide.
A severe insulin resistance, tumors on the adrenal glands or ovaries,
polycystic ovarian syndrome also cause it.
a medical history including questions about your menstrual cycle is important
Family history of hirsuitism

A blood test for testosterone,LH FSH ,prolactin ,levels
A CT scan, MRI or pelvic ultrasound can identify any tumors or cysts on your ovaries or adrenal glands.

There are a number of temporary hair removal practices, including 
1   waxing,
2  plucking and 
3 applying hair removal creams.
4  Bleaching makes the hair less noticeable. 
4 Electrolysis of the hair 
5 laser treatment will remove the hair for a long period of time. 
6 anti androgen like spironolactone 100 mg ,ketaconazole 200 mg etc
7 IPl or LASER can for longer time period.

First take the blood test and pelvis ct scan or ultrasound if comes abnormal consult your gynecologist .
If everything is normal in tests then you may opt for one of above remedies.
