One-third of all cancer diagnoses worldwide are skin malignancies. One of the most common tumors, skin cancer can develop from a variety of dermatological conditions and is subdivided into different categories based on its textile, color, body, and other morphological characteristics. The most effective strategy to lower the mortality rate of melanoma is early identification because skin cancer incidence has been on the rise recently. In order to categorize dermoscopy images into the four diagnosis classifications of melanoma, benign, malignant, and human against machine (HAM) not melanoma, this research suggests a computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system. Experimental results show that the suggested approach enabled 97.25% classification accuracy. In order to automate the identification of skin cancer and expedite the diagnosis process in order to save a life, the proposed technique offers a less complex and cutting-edge framework.
