Thousands of women worldwide are diagnosed with breast cancer yearly, which may be fatal if not treated. The diagnosis of the condition may take years, by which time the patient has little choice except to have the affected breast removed. Early diagnosis and treatments are the best ways to stop this disease's spread. In this study, the authors presented a Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) system to assist in breast cancer diagnosis. The study uses the Wisconsin breast cancer dataset to classify benign and malignant data. For the classification, three pre-trained Deep learning algorithms: Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM), Multilayer Perceptron (MLP), were used. A novel CNN model that exceeds the performance efficiency of three pre-trained models and requires minimal compilation time is proposed. A number of evaluation matrices are used to analyze the models' classification abilities. Upon closer inspection, it has been established that the proposed CNN model outperforms CNN, LSTM, and MLP models with validation accuracy of 97.85%. CNN and LSTM performed with accuracies of 94.12% with the Adagrad optimizer and 93.5% with the Adam optimizer, respectively. Furthermore, MLP performance with 92.44% accuracy using the Adam optimizer. The proposed CNN model achieves the lowest Loss value and compilation time. In addition, the models' recall value, precision, and f1-score are computed to pick out the most effective model for diagnosing breast cancer on numeric data.
