Breast Cancer diagnosis is one of the most studied problems in the medical domain. In the medical domain, cancer diagnosis has been studied extensively which instantiates the need of early prediction of cancer disease. For obtaining advance prediction, health records are exploited and given as input to an automated system. This paper focuses on constructing an automated system by employing deep learning based recurrent neural network models. A stacked GRU-LSTM-BRNN is proposed in this paper that accepts health records of a patient for determining possibility of being affected by breast cancer. Proposed model is compared against other baseline classifiers such as stacked Simple-RNN model, stacked LSTM-RNN model, stacked GRU-RNN model. Comparative results obtained in this study indicate that stacked GRU-LSTM-BRNN yield better classification performance for predictions related to breast cancer disease.

Comment: Hello, im working on prediction breast cancer, i rebuild the same architecture that you were proposed in the paper intitled: "Breast Cancer Prediction Using Stacked GRU-LSTM-BRNN" on WDBC dataset from UCI repository.
But with using 4 dense layers, i couldn't get the 97% accuracy that you had, and i got 94% using only one dense layer with 1 neuron.
So, would you like please explain to me how you got this hight accuracy?.
Best regards
