Does a dry itchy raised new mole always mean cancer?

Itchy

Cancer
Not every itchy mole is cancerous. Not every raised mole is cancerous. With that said it is a good idea to have a mole that is changing(raised) and symptomatic (itchy) evaluated by a dermatologist to make sure it is not cancerous

Should an itchy mole be of concern?

Itchy mole

Nevi
A mole that was not itching initially but becomes itchy is of concern. Any change like increase in size, darkening of the color,ulceration or bleeding make a lesion suspicious for possible skin cancer.

Why is my scar still itchy 3/4 after mole removal?

Itching is normal

Pruritis
During the healing process, the body releases special proteins that guide the repair and remodeling. One of the side-effects is itching. This will slowly resolve. In some patients, this resolution may be prolonged. Steroid can help but ask your dermatologist first.
