I have a small freckle or possibly mole on my thigh that seems to appear and then disappear. It has a red ring around it. What is it?

In brief: Have it checked.

Most likely it is a benign lesion given your history.
The red ring around it could be from irritation or the presence of a vascular lesion/blood vessels underlying or adjacent to the freckle.
