dark ring around skin colored mole *previous severe dysplastic nevus*

Hello, I'm new to this whole thing but I can't seem to find anyone with the same thing going on as me. I recently had an excision of a severe dysplastic nevus(severely atypical mole) on my scalp. The results came back that the margins were clear and I was happy to be done with that!

Now, I found another mole. This one is a raised bump that is skin colored with a dark red/brown ring around it. It is pretty close to a perfect circle. I had it immediately taken off, due to the previous severe diagnosis, and I'm waiting for the results to find out exactly what it is.

I'm wondering, has anyone out there seen a similar looking mole?! I can't find a picture on the internet anywhere I look, it's so bizarre..

Yes, I have the same mole on my chest but I'm not sure what it is or why it has a ring around the mole. I have searched this on the Internet, and like you, failed to find any articles or pictures. I'm not sure what to do
