Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of control cell growth and pancreatic cancer (PC) occurs when this uncontrolled cell growth begins in the pancreas. If it is malignant and not detected at early stages, it may cause death. The aim of this research work is to present artificial neural network and fuzzy logic in pancreatic disease diagnosis based on a set of symptoms. The real procedure of medical diagnosis which usually is employed by physicians was analysed and converted to a machine implementable format. This paper presents an approach to detect the various stages of pancreatic cancer affected patients. Outcome suggests the effectiveness of using neural network over manual detection procedure.

Neural Networks , Pancreatic Cancer , Fuzzy Logic

This System presents a neural network based approach for pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Pancreatic cancer detection in its early stage is the key of its cure. The automatic diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is an important medical problem. This system uses a set of fuzzy values incorporated into neural network system is more effecter than the normal system.
