Research Title: Factos Influencing the Mortality Rates of Breast Cancer
Breast Cancer is the 2nd most common Cancer in women in the U.S. Our project aims to utilize data mining and analyzation to explore the most common factors influencing the malignancy of breast cancer and its resulting mortality rates. We will explore the causative risk factors associated with the diagnosis of Breast Cancer through a correlational-descriptive design. Based on our extensive analysis, it was revealed that the mortality rates were heavily influenced by three variables: age at diagnosis, tumor size, and tumor stage.
