The itch had nothing to do with the tumor. The calling card was that when pressed on the lump hurt and sent a nerve zap to my foot, indicating that it was a growth pressing on a nerve.
As someone with OCD I know this kind of talk can be terrifying but please don't freak out every time you get an itch, that bit wasn't a symptom, it was just how I first noticed it, while scratching. It was coincidental.
Well it is a good thing you caught it so early. The sooner tumor is caught the better just like anything else health wise. Knew a coworker that found out had brain tumor but didnt know till he started acting all weird and his roommates took him to hospital. It was so advance that there was basically nothing he could do. He just said fuck it and quit job. Few months later he was gone. He was about 50 or so years old I think.
Hopefully everything works out for you but since you caught so early I don't think you should have too much to worry about. Still sucks but I'm sure you can pull through.
