Breast cancer is most prevalent among women around the world and Nigeria is no exception in this menace. The increased in survival rate is due to the dramatic advancement in the screening methods, early diagnosis, and discovery in cancer treatments. There is an improvement in different strategies of breast cancer classification. A model for   training   deep   neural networks   for classification   of   breast   cancer in histopathological images was developed in this study. However, this images are affected by data unbalance with the support of active learning. The output of the neural network on unlabeled samples was used to calculate weighted information entropy. It is utilized as uncertainty score for automatic selecting both samples with high and low confidence. A threshold   that   decays over iteration number is used   to   decide which high confidence samples should be concatenated with manually labeled samples and then used infine-tuning of convolutional neural network. The neural network was optionally trained using weighted cross-entropy loss to better cope with bias towards the majority class. The developed model was compared with the existing model. The accuracy level of 98.3% was achieved for the developed model while the existing model 93.97%. The accuracy gain of 4.33%. was achieved as performance in the prediction of breast cancer .
