Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a medical imaging technique which provides information about the human tissue anatomy. The MRI images are high in tissue contrast which helps the radiologist to visualize the finer details of the most delicate parts of the body such as brain. Because of the variety of shapes, locations and image intensities within the MRI, it becomes the challenging task for the radiologists to diagnose the brain tumor correctly at its early stage. In this paper, a Tumor

First the tumor region is extracted using the image processing techniques which enhance the image and removes the skull region of the image. Then the texture features of the image are extracted using the Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) with which the TDN network is trained. On basis of the training, the TDN network displays a message whether the test image is having a benign or malignant tumor.
