This work presents a deep learning technique to classify images and detect skin cancer at an early stage. We have trained our model using images of harmless, that is benign, images and tumor-based images; we have used convolutional neural network on those images to classify whether the image is a suspect of skin cancer or not. This proposed approach achieved an accuracy of 86% and is compared to the DCNN model. Also, an additional approach using the ResNet-50, a 50-layer deep CNN has been implemented which has proved useful in further improving the accuracy to over 90%.
