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,
Dr.chawda

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

I'm 16, about 3 years ago a brown mark appeared on the glans of my penis. It causes me no pain, is about the size of the tip of a "sharpie pen" and is flat. I think it's just a freckle but would like an opinion. I have a freckle/mole on my scrotum that I was bon with, but this is smaller. I am not circumsised, and am a virgin, i can seend pictures if necessary,

Thanks
