Tingling sensation on touching the moles. Is this melanoma?

Hi There, I have recently noticed (for no apparent reason) that when I push down on some of my moles they give a different sensation than my normal skin or some smaller moles. The sensation is more of a stinging than a dull pain, and hardly severe. The mole of interest appears to have a small darker dot inside of it which makes me suspicious of an abnormality that may be causing the pain. Is there something I should be worried about such as melanoma? Thanks, Ben A.
