In recent years, computational diagnostic tools and artificial intelligence techniques provide automated procedures for objective judgments by making use of quantitative measures and machine learning. The paper presents a Support Vector Machine (SVM) approach for the prognosis and diagnosis of breast cancer implemented on the Wisconsin Diagnostic Breast Cancer (WDBC) and the Wisconsin Prognostic Breast Cancer (WPBC) datasets found in literature. The SVM algorithm performs excellently in both problems for the case study datasets, exhibiting high accuracy, sensitivity and specificity indices.
