In this paper we present a simple design of skin cancer optical probe diagnostic system, which use a non-invasive optical method of detection. This method can be used to image of malignancies based on luminescence spectroscopy analysis of given tissues. Through a comparative analysis of red and green peaks in given spectra, the detection of cancerous tissues can be increased. Proposed method and given luminescence spectra, shows that this system can be used, as one of the criteria for early skin cancer diagnosis.
