Question birthmark on leg

I was born with a birthmark, its the size of a fist on my leg! Why do birthmarks get hairy? I shave mine ... Are you suppose to? When i say hairy, its almost like pubic hair totally gross!!

Have to admit I feel its held me back a lot, not so much now as I'm older and I don't tend to wear shorts etc. But knocked my confidence growing up, didn't go swimming or anything like that. Good to hear I'm not the only one!

If i could get rid of it I would, has anyone had surgery? My birthmark is pretty big and its quit dark, I've bought skin camouflage nd stuff but it doesn't do much, any advice?
