Breast Cancer is one of the life threatening disease among females all over the world. This killer disease however when it can be detected in its early stages can be a life saver for many. Radiologists uses the mammography images to detect the presence and absence of Breast Cancer. The field of Bio-informatics leverages the Machine learning techniques for diagnosis of Breast cancer in particular. This research work experiments with the two most popularly used Supervised Machine Learning Algorithms, K-Nearest Neighbour and Naive Bayes. This work predicts Breast Cancer on the The Breast Cancer Data Set (BCD) taken from the UCI Machine Learning Repository. A comparative analysis between the two approaches are made in terms of its performance metrics using CV techniques. The proposed work has achieved a best accuracy of 97.15% by employing the KNN algorithm and a lowest error rate of 96.19% using NB classifier.
