Abstract: Development of abnormal cells are the cause of skin cancer that have the ability to attack or spread to various parts of the body. The skin cancer signs may include mole that has varied in size, shape, color, and may also haveno –uniform edges, might be having multiple colours, and would itch orevn bleed in some cases. The exposure to the UV-rays from the sun is considered to be accountable for more than 90% of the Skin Cancer cases which are recorded.In this paper, the development of a classificiation system for skin cancer, is discussed, using Convolutional Neural Network which would help in classifying the cancer usingTensorFlow and Keras as Malignantor Benign. The collected images from the data set are fed into the system and it is processed to classify the skin cancer. After the implementation the accuracy of the Convolutional 2-D layer system developed is found to be 78%.
