Skin diseases such as Melanoma and Carcinoma are often quite hard to detect at an early stage and it is even harder to classify them separately. Recently, it is well known that, the most dangerous form of skin cancer among the other types of skin cancer is melanoma because it is much more likely to spread to other parts of the body if not diagnosed and treated early. In order to classify these skin diseases, Support Vector Machine (SVM) a Machine Learning Algorithm can be used. In this paper, we propose a method to identify whether a given sample is affected with Melanoma or not. The steps involved in this study are collecting labelled data of images that are pre-processed, flattening those images and getting the pixel intensities of images into an array, appending all such arrays into a database, training the SVM with labelled data using a suitable kernel, and using the trained data to classify the samples successfully. The results show that the achieved accuracy of classification is about 90%. © 2019 IEEE.
