In previous days, the growth in various technologies and the huge data generation has produced a drastic development in database and sources. Medicinal area characterizes a rich data field. A wide-ranging quantity of medicinal data is presently offered, reaching from details of medical indications to several kinds of medicinal data and creation of image capturing components. The manual extraction of medicinal designs is a hard job due to the nature of medicinal field includes enormous, lively, and difficult information. DM is accomplished to improve the value to extract medicinal designs. This paper outlines the applications of DM on the groups of diseases is projected. The key effort is to examine machine learning (ML) models commonly utilized for the prediction, prognosis and treatment of significant standard diseases like heart diseases, cancer, hepatitis, and diabetes. A set of different classifier models is applied to examine their efficiency. This examination distributes a complete investigation of the recent position of diagnosing diseases by the use of ML models. The attained detection rate of the numerous applications ranges between 70–100% based on diseases, utilized data and methods.
