Q.

Hairgrowth from nipple

Good day Dr I have a hair growing directly out of the centre of my right nipple... there is a few hairs in the area around my areola but those have been there quite a while. I had some painful stinging sensations in my right breast this morning and when I looked at my breast I saw the hair. I am a bit concerned as a mammogram mid last year showed a lump in that breast which was reported as a fibroadenoma. Should I be worried about this and go see my GP or gynae or can I just pluck it and go on with my life? I am a 43 year old female and had a histerectomy four years ago, still have both my ovaries. Thank you so much.
