Abstract: Breast cancer is the most common disease and major cause of death among women. Early detection of this disease can greatly enhance the chances of long-term survival of breast cancer victims. Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) have been widely used for cancer prediction and prognosis. This paper studies various techniques used for the diagnosis of breast cancer using ANN. Different methods for breast cancer detection are explored and their accuracies are compared.
