Image processing is having very important role in medical domain. Melanoma skin cancer is critical and dangerous for human beings. Early detection of Melanoma skin cancer is very much necessary for the patient because this Melanoma skin cancer directly lead to the death of a person. If it is detected at early stage then Melanoma skin cancer is completely curable. In this paper early detection and classification of Melanoma skin cancer is done using different classifiers as Neural Network and Support Vector Machine.
