Itchy mole on the back. Tried hydrocortisone. Acute pain. Mole removal suggested. What are the reasons for this?

I had an itch on my back that lasted for about six weeks. I visited my GP and he noted a minuscule mole in the area around the itch, but decided that it was too small to bother over, suggesting that I apply hydrocortisone and see if the itch clears up in two weeks. If not, he said he will remove the mole. In the following days, however, the itch has been replaced by what feels like an acute pain that I can only describe as a muscle cramp that I cannot stretch or rub out. I ll be calling my GP again to address the problem if it persists, but I was wondering if you had any ideas about what might be causing this.

hello and welcome to health care magic.
any mole small or big if growing in size may be subjected to an histopathological exaamination if removed.
you may also see a dermatologist and get a dermascope examination to rule out any abnormality.
painful moles may be due to infection.
any way i hope you a fast recovery. please update your action to me
thank you
