Abstract—Feature selection is an important issue in classification of cancer diagnosis. In this paper, a new feature selection method, named improved F-Score is applied for breast cancer diagnosis. First, the improved F-Score values of all the features are calculated using improved F-Score formula. Then the mean value is computed for the calculated improved F-Score values. The improved F-Score values which are greater than the mean improved F-Score are selected. Wisconsin breast cancer dataset (WBCD) is used in this study. As classification algorithms, Support Vector Machine and RBF Network are sued. The results obtained from improved F-Score with Support Vector Machines have produced efficient results compared to improved F-Score with RBF Network. Therefore we show that improved F-Score combined with promising than improved F-Score with RBF Network.

Index Terms—Breast cancer, feature selection, improved F-Score, RBF network, SVM.
