For African women, Ly An provides more accurate and timely information on your breast cancer risk and control than any other medical information available, through a moble application. Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women throughout Africa. 70-80% of these cases are diagnosed when the cancer is already in late stages. Factors like a lack of awareness and inadequate diagnostics facilities have contributed to the problem. Lyons Analytics proposes to develop a predictive and prescriptive system that uses machine learning to track the progression of breast cancer from onset to late stages. The system will support an increased understanding about breast cancer formation and its spread, how the disease will progress for the patient, and what treatments to initiate as a result.
