A Comparative Study of Various Techniques used for Melanoma Detection

RAINA RAJU K, S. Swapna Kumar


Skin cancer is one of the most fatal disease. It is easily curable, when it is detected in its beginning stage. Early detection of melanoma through accurate techniques and innovative technologies has the greatest potential for decreasing mortality associated with this disease. Mainly there are four steps for detecting melanoma which includes preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction and classification. The preprocessing stage will remove all the artifacts associated with the lesion. The exact boundaries of lesion are identified from normal skin through segmentation method. Feature extraction stage is used for calculating and obtaining different parameters of the lesion region. The final stage is to classify the lesion as benign or malignant.  In this paper different types of segmentation methods and classification methods are described. Both of these stages are accurately implemented to reach the final detection of the lesion.
