Melanoma skin cancer is very dangerous type of skin cancer among the other types of skin cancer. It starts in the melanocytes due to the unwanted growth of the cells in human body and usually these are in the black or brown in color. It develops anywhere on the skin. It is very serious type of skin cancer among the other types of skin cancer because it spreads very vastly to other parts of the body if not diagnosed and treated early it spreads in distinct areas such as liver, lymph, etc. The aim of this study is to detect melanoma at early stage for the effective treatment and prevention. In this paper computer aided diagnosis system is presented. This system consist pre-processing, segmentation, feature extraction and classification of the image. For which the filtering process is used for pre-processing purpose , the segmentation is done by using K-means clustering algorithm and feature extraction is done by GLCM matrix analysis. From the parameters getting from GLCM matrix through that ANN will be trained to classify the image.
