Nowadays, machine learning technology is needed in the medical field. therefore, this research is useful for solving problems in the medical field by using machine learning. Many cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed late. When colorectal cancer is detected, the cancer is usually well developed. Machine learning is an approach that is part of artificial intelligence and can detect colorectal cancer early. This study discusses colorectal cancer detection using twin support vector machine (SVM) method and kernel function i.e. linear kernels, polynomial kernels, RBF kernels, and gaussian kernels. By comparing the accuracy and running time, then we will know which method is better in classifying the colorectal cancer dataset that we get from Al-Islam Hospital, Bandung, Indonesia. The results showed that polynomial kernels has better accuracy and running time. It can be seen with a maximum accuracy of twin SVM using polynomial kernels 86% and 0.502 seconds running time.
