The early detection of skin cancer, particularly melanoma, presents a substantial risk to human health. This study aims to examine the necessity of implementing efficient early detection systems through the utilization of deep learning techniques. Nevertheless, the existing methods exhibit certain constraints in terms of accessibility, diagnostic precision, data availability, and scalability. To address these obstacles, we put out a lightweight model known as Smart MobiNet, which is derived from MobileNet and incorporates additional distinctive attributes. The model utilizes a multi-scale feature extraction methodology by using various convolutional layers. The ISIC 2019 dataset, sourced from the International Skin Imaging Collaboration, is employed in this study. Traditional data augmentation approaches are implemented to address the issue of model overfitting. In this study, we conduct experiments to evaluate and compare the performance of three different models, namely CNN, MobileNet, and Smart MobiNet, in the task of skin cancer detection. The findings of our study indicate that the proposed model outperforms other architectures, achieving an accuracy of 0.89. Furthermore, the model exhibits balanced precision, sensitivity, and F1 scores, all measuring at 0.90. This model serves as a vital instrument that assists clinicians efficiently and precisely detecting skin cancer.
