People with moles that are itchy or painful may want to ask a doctor about the possibility of cancer.

Researchers at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center found that more than a third of skin cancer lesions are itchy, and more than a quarter involve pain.

The study included nearly 300 patients.

Researchers say the signals may be an easy way for dermatologists to determine whether moles should be looked at more closely.
