In this study we look at a breast cancer data set of women from the Pomerania region collected in the year 1987- 1992 in the Medical University of Gdansk.We analyze the clinical risk factors in conjunction with a Markov model of cancer development. We evaluate Artificial Neural Network (ANN) survival time prediction (which was done on this data set in a previous study) via a simulation study.
