Title : Melanoma diagnostics in dermatocosmetological practice


Melanoma, a malignant tumor of melanocytes, is one of the most aggressive forms of skin cancer and poses significant diagnostic challenges in dermatocosmetological practice. Early detection and accurate diagnosis are crucial for improving patient outcomes. This presentation discusses the advancements in melanoma diagnostics, emphasizing non-invasive techniques and their integration into cosmetic dermatology settings. We review the latest diagnostic tools, including dermatoscopy and digital imaging, which allow for detailed examination of suspicious lesions. The role organising national event like Early melanoma diagnostics day in national healthcare improvement is also explored. Moscow has established an effective system for the detection, differential diagnosis and monitoring of melanoma in patients. Additionally, we highlight the importance of professional training in the interpretation of diagnostic results to reduce the incidence of false positives and negatives. The presentation concludes with recommendations for a multidisciplinary approach, combining dermatocosmetological expertise with advanced diagnostic technologies, to achieve early and precise melanoma detection, ultimately leading to better prognoses and patient care.
