There are some works applying data mining models to patients suffering from colorectal cancer that try to predict the survival of those patients. However, in the context of a public and universal healthcare system it is necessary, and this is our main objective, to deploy machine learning models that focus not only on predicting patients with a good prognosis but also on predicting the factors that could produce some complications in those patients that may cause re-admisions and recidives of the tumour. We think that detecting complications as soon as possible is a key point that will benefit the patients because they get an early diagnosis that could increase their survival probability.

The partial objectives are the following:

  • Applying the classic data mining models to the colorectal cancer database in order to study their behavior in this problem.
  • Deploying our own knowledge discovery model for patients suffering from colorectal cancer in Andalucia.
  • Comparing our model with the existing ones in order to check its performance.
