Hairy mole

Postby Rozcunliffe on Wed Feb 20, 2019 3:34 pm

I have had a mole under each year ever since I can remember. They are both so light in colour that you can hardly see them thank goodness but recently one of them has grown long grey hairs and has become more sensitive to touch. I have put this down to old age as I am in my seventies.
Is it ok to cut or shave the hairs, sorry if this sounds silly but they are sticking out a bit and I feel they would be better trimmed.
