methods of treatment of skin melanoma at all stages of the tumor process have been optimized.
As part of the course, we:
1. Let's analyze the principles of diagnosis and treatment of dysplastic melanocytic nevi
skin (risk groups for the incidence of skin melanoma, clinical picture
skin melanoma and its metastases, international visual diagnostic system
melanoma of the skin according to ABCDE, etc.).
2. Let's analyze the dermatoscopic criteria for melanocytic skin formations, as well as
criteria for pigmented and non-pigmented skin melanoma variants using
3. Let's analyze the epidemiology, etiology and pathogenesis of skin melanoma.
4. Let's analyze the principles of diagnosis and treatment of local, locally widespread and
disseminated forms of skin melanoma (indications for PET/CT in the "total" mode

contraindications of targeted drugs in the presence of a mutation in melanoma in the B gene-
RAF and C-kit, as well as the mechanisms of action, indications and contraindications of the new
immuno-oncological drugs-blockers of immune control points -
inhibiting T-cell receptors CTLA-4 and PD1-inhibitors.
5. We will study in detail the technique and technique of surgical removal of primary melanoma
skin (volume of operations, margins from the edges of the melanoma during its surgical removal,
methods and indications for sentinel lymph node biopsy).
6. Let's analyze the principles of diagnosis and treatment of precancerous skin.
7. Let's analyze the dermatoscopic criteria for various types of skin cancer using
8. Let's analyze the epidemiology, etiology and pathogenesis of skin cancer.
9. Let's analyze the principles of diagnosis and treatment of local skin cancer (cryodestruction,
electrocoagulation, laser removal, radiotherapy, local therapy, as well as types and
volumes of operations, principles of diagnosis and treatment).
10. Let's analyze the principles of diagnosis and treatment of locally advanced and
disseminated skin cancer (types and volumes of operations, schemes of modern surgery)
