A Model to Predict Survival among Pancreatic Cancer Patients using Supervised Machine Learning

Simbarashe N. Manyetu | Monika Gondo [3]


Abstract: Cancer is a diverse illness with uncontrolled cell division and the propensity to spread. It has continuous cell division, no programmed cell death, tissue invasion, and blood vessel formation at its location. Oncologists can use cancer survival rates to determine a patient's prognosis and treatment approach. Age, race, cancer site, stage, grade, number of tumors, kind of cancer; and other factors affect patient survival. This study focused on Pancreatic Cancer patient survival prediction using CNN on a dataset that with 7558 labelled images.The model predicted cancer survival with a maximum score of 1 which is the highest possible score on all the metrics used. However, the confusion matrix of the model indicates that the model made 10 false positives and 9 false negatives making a total of 19 false predictions.The model's training and validation loss were 0.02 and 0.03. These loss values are low and converge to zero, indicating effective model prediction and dependability.
