mole and freckle query
Hi there
I have just asked the question about the strange circle around a mole and some freckles on my leg. I think i should just mention that the circle is not right on top of the mole of the flat freckle but about half a centimeter away. a very clear circle.

thanks
kea

The lesion is called a halo nevus and may disappear totally due to an inflammatory rsponse directed against the mole. If you are still concerned rather see your doctor.
