melanoma itching

I've googled "melanoma symptoms" and "melanoma itch" and gone to some medical sites (Medline Plus, the CDC, MayoClinic), but only got general information.

My character is an Asian woman in her 20's with a cancerous mole, and I need specifics. How often and how bad is a cancerous mole itch - several times a day, once a day, just once, relentlessly? Is the itch slight or the kind that makes you want to rip off your skin just to make it stop? When does it start itching? Does it tend to get bigger or start looking abnormal first before it starts itching?
