Graphical Abstract:


Background: Lung Cancer is the disease spreading around the world nowadays. Early recognition of lung disease is a difficult task as the cells which cause tumor will grow quickly and the majority of these cells are enclosed with each other. From the beginning of the treatment, tumor detection handling systems which are generally utilized for the diagnosis of lung cancer, recognizable proof of hereditary and ecological elements is imperative in creating a novel technique for lung tumor detection. In different cancers, for example, lung cancer, the time calculated is imperative to find the anomaly issue in target images.

Methods: In this proposed framework, GLCM (Gray Level Co-event Matrix) is utilized for preprocessing of images and to feature extraction procedures to check the condition of the patient whether it is ordinary or irregular. Surface-based elements, for example, GLCM (Gray Level Co-event Matrix) features assume a vital part of remedial image examination which is utilized for the identification of Lung cancer. In the event that lung cancer is effectively distinguished and anticipated in its initial stages, it lessens numerous treatment choices and furthermore, decreases the danger of intrusive surgery and increment survival rate.

Results & Conclusion: The proposed method will efficiently identify the position of the tumor in lungs using the probability framework. This will offer a promising outcome for recognition and diagnosis of lung cancer. In this manuscript, GLCM features are used for the prediction of lung tumor and tests are performed for performance analysis in comparison with the histogram and GLCM features, in which GLCM features are accurate in predicting lung tumor even if it takes more time than histogram features. In this manner, early discovery and probability of lung cancer should assume a crucial task in finding a procedure and furthermore, an increment in the survival rate of the patient. This exploration investigates machine learning systems which consider quality articulation, to perceive cancer or to identify lung cancer.
