Erythema Annulare Centrifugum

Posted earlier about a small lesion on my inner thigh. started out( on Saturday) as a red, raised pea sized, round, non painful, non itching spot with a tiny white spot in the center. By the middle of the week, the center got bigger, flatter, and appeared to  be scaly looking, while the outside stayed red and raised , almost like a donut ( red on the outside, white scaly inside).
It's almost gone after using a steroid creme and it's no where else on my body.
I'm a healthy female 42 yo, had complete physcial in April, normal weight, etc...no other issues.
Saw the Derm MD and he said it could be EAC, ringworm( not likely) , or an excema like lesion.
He said as long as I didn't see anymore anywhere else that if it were EAC, if would be ok...but if anymore came up that it would be a problem. He was short staffed and could not talk to me, but said to look it up.

Well I did and I read something about T-cell Leukemia??

Can you please explain this to me...

DOes this ,mean that I have this disease ( T-Cell ), does it mean I wil get it?

If I have one lesion, will others start appearing?

Why would he say this to me and leave me like that??

I am completely freaked out.

EAC (erythema annulare centrifugum) looks like large, circular or semicircular patches.  That's not at all what you describe having.  You'll have to ask him why he said it.  Neither what you describe not what he said has anything meaningful to do with T-cell Leukemia.  You are doing yourself no favor by looking things like that up, when they don't apply to you.  Please ask these questions to the dermatologist who saw you.  Remember that he also mentioned ringworm and eczema, which have nothing to do with leukemia.

Good luck.
