How can i get rid from mole on hand ?

Hi I am 23 year old female. I have a concern about a mole on my hand that I have had as long as i can remember. About two months ago the mole started to get very itchy and then it started to change color from a medium brown to a purplish pink color. Now it doesn t look like anything it use to look like it went from smooth the a bumpy feeling and odd shape circle. And it also itches very much and keeps getting a bruise around it. I am just concerned because of the concerns with moles being related with cancer . Thank you

Hello and welcome to HealthcareMagic!
Since the mole has changed colour, grown in size recently,started itching and bleeding, I advise you to visit a dermatologist immediately and urgently. I cannot comment on the cancerous change of a mole without examining it, but it is mandatory for you to visit your dermatologist without further delay.
Regards and best wishes.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
As mentioned by you that the mole has changed its texture ,color and is need to consult a dermatologist and get a biopsy done...probably the dermatologist would go for a an excisional biopsy where in the whole mole is removed and send for biopsy.Its better to consult a place where there is good pathology service and a oncologist(cancer specialist) available along with a dermatologist.
take care,
