Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Early detection and prevention of cancer plays a very important role in reducing deaths caused by cancer. Identification of genetic and environmental factors is very important in developing novel methods to detect and prevent cancer. Therefore a novel multi layered method combining clustering and decision tree techniques to build a cancer risk prediction system is proposed here which predicts lung, breast, oral, cervix, stomach and blood…
