Breast cancer is a rapidly growing cancerous disease, which leads to the main cause of death in women. The early identification of breast cancer is essential for improving patients' prognosis. The proposed work aims at identifying the relationships between the attributes of breast cancer datasets obtained from HCG Hospital, Bengaluru (India). The work focuses on identifying the effect of attributes on three different classes, which are metastasis, progression, and death using Apriori algorithm, an association rule mining technique. To analyze the relation among the attributes with the value it takes for a particular class, more detailed rules are generated using decision tree-based rule mining technique. Rules are selected for each class based on specific threshold set for confidence, lift, and support.
