What is the cause of grey hair on the mole ?

I am a 28 year old male who has had a mole on my chin since birth . I have noticed that the hairs on my mole are starting to turn white/grey. But there are no visible white/grey hair coloring anywhere else except where the mole is. What causes this?

Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
I don't think there is any problem with the hair turning gray ,since you are now 28 ,and it can be considered as a normal aging process.If at all the mole abruptly increases in size or bleeds or itches then you should consult a dermatologist and get it removed.

regards,

My son is 15 years old and he was born with a mole on the back of his head, a flat discoloration , the doctor in that time told us that we did not have to worry about it that it was a birth mark. Today he got a hair cut and I notice grey hairs protruding and thicker. The color of the mole is almost the same color as when he was born slightly darker in the center, is about an inch long on a oval shape. Can you explain me what steps to take. Thank you. Fernando

About a year ago I had a mole removed on the upper right arm because it was itching. Afterwards there was pain in the bicep muscle where the root of the mole had gone down into it. The root area was cauterized by the doctor. Well, that muscle area never got well. Even though the site of the mole itself is OK, there is contimued pain in the bicep muscle. It hurts especially after I do push-ups or other strenuous exercise.Any ideas re cause, treatment and cure?

I have a brown flat mole on my arm that just showed up quickly...out of nowhere. Border is regular. Color is uniform. Symmetrical. Does not itch. It is about 6mm. I am fair skinned with many many moles. I am 50 years old. Is this worrisome? It does not look like any of the cancer pictures that I have seen online.
