Tumor is an uncontrolled growth of tissue in any part of the body. The tumor is of different types and they have different characteristics and different treatment. This paper is to implement of Simple Algorithm for detection of range and shape of tumor in brain MR Images. Normally the anatomy of the Brain can be viewed by the MRI scan or CT scan. MRI scanned image is used for the entire process. The MRI scan is more comfortable than any other scans for diagnosis. It will not affect the human body, because it doesn’t practice any radiation. It is centered on the magnetic field and radio waves. There are dissimilar types of algorithm were developed for brain tumor detection. But they may have some drawback in detection and extraction. After the segmentation, which is done through k-means clustering and fuzzy c-means algorithms the brain tumor is detected and its exact location is identified. Comparing to the other algorithms the performance of fuzzy c-means plays a major role. The patient's stage is determined by this process, whether it can be cured with medicine or not.
