When a mole hurts when you itch it does that mean it's cancerous?

In brief: Concerning

Moles that start to itch, scab, or bleed should be brought to the attention of your friendly dermatologist.

In brief: Possibly

Changes in a mole such as color, shape, size, texture may be a sign of malignant transformation.
If the mole feels different such as being painful or itchy or if it's bleeding are all reasons to get it seen by a dermatologist and possible biopsy to make sure it's not becoming a melanoma.
