Cancer Detection Through Handwriting

Authors: Alaa Tarek, Shorouk Alalem, Maryam El-Fdaly, Nehal Fooda

Having a look at the medical field in the previous years and the drawbacks in it, Egypt's health level is declining year after year; due to the statistical study on the health level published by the British medical journal Lancet in 2016 Egypt ranked 124 out of 188 countries. Cancer is a major burden of disease worldwide. Each year, 10,000,000 of people are diagnosed with cancer around the world, and more than half of the patients eventually die because of it. In many countries, cancer ranks the second most common cause of death following cardiovascular diseases. With significant improvement in treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancer has or will soon become the number one killer in many parts of the world. Nearly 90,000 people do not know they have got cancer until they arrive at Accident and Emergency wards, by that time only 36 percent will live longer than a year. So, we needed to find controlled ways to diagnose patients earlier. As no aspect of human life has escaped the impact of the information age, and perhaps in no area of life is information more critical than in health and medicine. However, computers have become available for all aspects of human endeavors. After so, we have designed a program that could detect if a person has cancer or not through your handwriting. We chose “efficiency, cost, and applicability” as the design requirements that have been tested. The program could be tested by scanning the text, searching for specific features that are related to cancer and displaying “1” or “0” according to your state. After testing the program many times, we finally reached a mean efficiency of 93.75%. So, this program saves lives, time and money.
