Mole on the chest with ring around it, seems to be halo moles. Do they cause any side effects?

So I happened to do research a week or two ago about this mole I have on my chest with ring around it. I ve had this since I was a bit younger, but now that I m a teenager, I looked up to see what it is exactly. It appears that halo moles aren t uncommon. Does halo moles have side affects, or need to be taken care right away?

I would be pleased to answer your question .
Halo moles do not have side effects. In fact Halo moles area known to have the negligible chance of Melanomas. There is nothing to worry as there is an extensive literature and studies that have been done are safe.
