During mammogram screening, there is a higher probability that detection of cancers is missed, and more than 16 percentage of breast cancer is not detected by radiologists. This problem can be solved by employing image processing algorithms which enhances the accuracy of the diagnostic through image segmentation which reduces the misclassified malignant cancers. By employing segmentation, the unnecessary regions in the breast close to the boundary between the breast tissue and segmented pectoral muscle can be removed, therefore enhancing the accuracy the calculation as well as feature estimation. In-order to enhance the accuracy of classification, the proposed classifier integrates the decision trees and neural network into a system to report the progress of the breast cancer patients in an appropriate manner with the help of technology used in healthcare system. The proposed classifier successfully demonstrated that it achieved more accurate prediction when compared with other widely used algorithms, namely, K-Nearest Neighbors, Support Vector Machine and Naive Bayes algorithm.
