I've had a question I've been debating about asking for a while since it's probably just one of those random, unimportant things that happen to the body sometimes.

Anyway, on my breast there is a single hair follicle that grows like the hair on my head. I have to cut it usually or it just keeps getting longer. I want to say that it was that way the last time I had a regular gyno check up, but if it was it couldn't have been that long or I'm sure it would have been noticed. Then again admittedly I haven't been in over a year because I haven't really been sexually active in that time.

Should I worry or is this something I can ask about the next time I get to the gyno (hopefully in the next few months)?

This isn't something to worry about, Obi. [Smile]

Hair growing from nipples is not that dissimilar from pubic hair. It's not uncommon at all; the nipples we see in media, whatever the gender of the person in question, almost always have had hair removed. It's absolutely your decision to cut it, pluck it, leave it, or braid it as you please. [Smile]
