We analyze the lung cancer data available from the SEER program with the aim of developing accurate survival prediction models for lung cancer using data mining techniques. Carefully designed preprocessing steps resulted in removal/modification/splitting of several attributes, and 2 of the 11 derived attributes were found to have significant predictive power. Several data mining classification techniques were used on the preprocessed data along with various data mining optimizations and… CONTINUE READING
