Abstract: Worldwide, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer in women accounting for 25% of all cases. Survival rates in the developed countries are comparatively higher with that of developing countries. This had led to the importance of computer aided diagnostic methods for early detection of breast cancer disease. This eventually reduces the death rate. This paper intents the scope of the biomarker that can be used to predict the breast cancer from the anthropometric data. This experimental study aims at computing and comparing various classification models (Binary Logistic Regression, Ball Vector Machine (BVM), C4.5, Partial Least Square (PLS) for Classification, Classification Tree, Cost sensitive Classification Tree, Cost sensitive Decision Tree, Support Vector Machine for Classification, Core Vector Machine, ID3, K-Nearest Neighbor, Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), Log-Reg TRIRLS, Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP), Multinomial Logistic Regression (MLR), Naïve Bayes (NB), PLS for Discriminant Analysis, PLS for LDA, Random Tree (RT), Support Vector Machine SVM) for the UCI Coimbra breast cancer dataset. The feature selection algorithms (Backward Logit, Fisher Filtering, Forward Logit, ReleifF, Step disc) are worked out to find out the minimum attributes that can achieve a better accuracy. To ascertain the accuracy results, the Jack-knife cross validation method for the algorithms is conducted and validated. The Core vector machine classification algorithm outperforms the other nineteen algorithms with an accuracy of 82.76%, sensitivity of 76.92% and specificity of 87.50% for the selected three attributes, Age, Glucose and Resistin using ReleifF feature selection algorithm.
