Abstract: One of the crucial applications of data mining is medical data mining (MDM) that diagnoses almost all medical syndromes. MDM incorporates with early predictions, existence and depth of any disease. In fact, MDM supplements the partial assistance of physicians. Though there were many works carried out in MDM, liver cancer is still considered to be a life threatening and has lowest survivability. Predicting the existence of liver cancer at the early stage is highly challengeable for the doctors. The goal of this review is to study the related works on cancer especially liver cancer, an experiment was carried out with the help of dataset to check out the performance of seven classification algorithms with the respect to time and accuracy. This paper also discussed some research key factors that could help the research fraternity to be focused on.
