Lung cancer is the most prevalent cancer in the world, accounting for 12.2% of all newly diagnosed cases in 2020 and has the highest mortality rate due to its late diagnosis and poor symptom detection. Currently, there are 4,319 lung cancer deaths in Malaysia, representing 2.57 percent of all mortality in 2020. The late diagnosis of lung cancer is common, which makes survival more difficult. In Malaysia, however, most cases are detected when the tumors have become too large, or cancer has spread to other body areas that cannot be removed surgically. This is a frequent situation due to the lack of public awareness among Malaysians regarding cancer-related symptoms. Malaysians must be acknowledged the highrisk symptoms of lung cancer to enhance the survival rate and reduce the mortality rate. This study aims to use a fuzzy linear regression model with heights of triangular fuzzy by Tanaka (1982), H-value ranging from 0.0 to 1.0, to predict high-risk symptoms of lung cancer in Malaysia. The secondary data is analyzed using the fuzzy linear regression model by collecting data from patients with lung cancer at Al-Sultan Abdullah Hospital (UiTM Hospital), Selangor. The results found that haemoptysis and chest pain has been proven to be the highest risk, among other symptoms obtained from the data analysis. It has been discovered that the H-value of 0.0 has the least measurement error, with mean square error (MSE) and root mean square error (RMSE) values of 1.455 and 1.206, respectively.
