What is it with hairy moles people in China have?

Dear TCG

Visiting China recently I kept seeing old men with moles on their faces and invariably long thing wiriny hair growing out of them which was longer than the hair on their heads... what gives?

Dear Daisy

Moles in Chinese society are something to do with luck, it is much like the superstition of Cantonese people around Chinese New year, the lack of 4th floors or any other floor with a number 4 in it. Moles too can determine, luck and life. Thus if you have an unlucky mole on your face you get it removed. If you have a lucky one then you don't remove it simple as, and you especially leave it alone.

Have a look at the list above and compare it to this list


  1. Cannot get along with parents, boss, or the elderly. Try to keep a respectful distance with them.

  2. Same to 1. No respect to parents, boss, or the elderly. Try to keep a respectful distance with them.

  3. Same to 1. Try to keep a respectful distance with them.

  4. Lack of planning, and have unstable life.

  5. (above the eyebrow) – May encounter misfortune brought on by family or friends, or may have bad luck with money.

  6. (in the eyebrow) – Very smart, creative or artistic. Will have wealth and fame, and have good luck with money.

  7. (on the eyelid) – Tend to have conflicts with family, and have problem keeping money.

  8. Have financial hardship. Need to prevent unwanted sexual advances.

  9. Need to prevent unwanted sexual advances, and prevent accidents.

  10. Unlikely to have or to be with children or grandchildren.

  11. Tend to be troubled by long term or severe illness.

  12. Tend to have problems related to diet or food.

  13. Always worry and work hard for children, but may not be able to enjoy a good relationship with them.

  14. Have high risk of food poisoning or allergy.

  15. Do not reside at one place for long, move around a lot or have unstable environment.

  16. Need to prevent unwanted sexual advances, and prevent food poisoning or diet problems.

  17. Be cautious with your actions to prevent loosing good reputation.

  18. Be mindful of your well being when traveling abroad.

  19. Need to prevent unwanted sexual advances.

  20. Life may be short, so live it to the fullest. Avoid any criminal acts.

  21. Tend to have foot problems. Need to prevent water-related accidents.

  22. Need to prevent accidents while traveling.

  23. Prominent and rich.

This does not apply only to the face as it also applies to the body too.

  • A mole in red color on the chest is a good mole. It implies passion, generous, love and good relationship with children.

  • A mole on the buttocks hints the person with enthusiasm, vitality, meeting people and money luck.

  • A mole on the back indicates a person with outgoing personality with strong communication skill.

  • A mole on the lower leg implies working hard, responsible personality for business and family.

  • Moles on the palm are all good moles, which shouldn't be removed.

  • Moles on the neck around Adam's apple implies the person has hard time to get along with family.

  • A mole around navel with red color represents the person is a gourmet. It is also a good sign of fortune and wisdom.

  • A mole on the shoulder hints the person needs to work hard for the family and have more argument than people.

Therefore the moles you see on the faces of people are most probably ones for fortune and or good luck. My mum had several removed from my face small ones 7, 17 and 21 ish type positions on my face. Probably like palmology sort of thing or cranialology etc. But old habits die hard in China.

  1. Does it count if I removed a mole?

  2. Ah man, I have a "beauty spot" which is, obviously, considered beautiful in the West but this is telling me I'm unlikely to have children (and also grandchildren which is weird, how would I have them without children?)

  3. Reason why and how mole occur on body

    As per the Mayo Clinic, researchers don’t comprehend reason mole occur on body. In any case, it’s normal for grown-ups to have from 10 to 40 moles on their bodies, says the Cleveland Clinic.
