In the Russian Federation, as in most developed countries of the world, there is a tendency to a steady increase in the incidence of malignant neoplasms. In the structure of mortality of the population of our country, malignant neoplasms occupy the second place-after diseases of the cardiovascular system.

Evidence of a problem in the organization of early detection of malignant tumors is a high rate of neglect, which in some oncological diseases reaches more than 30%. In recent years, characterized by great socio-economic changes, despite the lack of funding for medicine, scientific research continues to improve the results of treatment of cancer patients.

According to Rosstat, in 2018, the number of children with malignant neoplasms was a record. There were 21248 cases of cancer in children under 14 years of age and 5707 cases in children from 15 to 17 years of age. These are the highest figures since 2008. President of the National Medical Research Center for Pediatric Hematology, Oncology, and Immunology. Dmitry Rogachev, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Rumyantsev said that this is a positive indicator.

Positive figures, reflecting an increase in the dispensary group of children who have suffered from cancer, due to effective treatment (more than 80% of patients have a relapse-free course of the disease for more than five years). Extensive experience has been gained in the use of fundamentally new approaches to surgical, combined and complex treatment of patients with malignant tumors, which have significantly improved the 5-year survival rate of patients. All of the above dictates the need for a deep and comprehensive development of professional competence and professional training of a pediatric oncologist in the NMO system.
