Hi Prabesh Malla
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You probably have a Nevus with hair. This finding can be due to any underlying disease or a disease itself.I advise you to visit your Dermatologist and get this examined and if needed a biopsy might be taken.This should be differentiated from cancer and so treatment depends on it.

Take care.
