I have had a mole on the side of my head since I was a baby.

Customer Question

I have had a mole on the side of my head since I was a baby. I noticed about 3 years ago a skin tag growing on it and just today got a haircut and had it slightly cut. I just want to make sure it is ok
As you can see it is red cuz it was cut with clippers on accident

It could even be a skin tag from the mole getting cut a while ago from clippers. Idk it just never looked like that when I was a kid

Looks benign to me. Worth getting a second look when I heals but I think you are okay
