Have brown mole with ingrown hair above lip. Should I be worried?

my 10 year old has a brown mole above his lip that recently grew within the last 3 years or so. It has hair growing out of it. I brought him in for his bi yearly dental check and the dentist told me we should see his Dr. to get it checked and removed. He said it was odd for a 10 year old to have a mole with hair growing out of it. We just had a lesion on his head biopsied and just heard this last week that it was benign reactive lesion with many inflamatory cells. Just wondering how much I should worry about this?

Hello & welcome
as your son was diagnosed with a benign lesion of head it does not mean that this is also the same thing, as being a benign lesion it will not migrate to the lip.
if along with hair growth your son do complaint of pain, itching, or burning in that particular condition you should get it biopsied.
rest without clinical examination it will be hurry to say anything, but its not looking anything dangerous or malignant.
Take care.
