Machine Learning plays a significant role among the areas of Artificial Intelligence (AI). During recent years, Machine
Learning (ML) has been attracting many researchers, and it has been successfully applied in many fields such as medical,
education, forecasting etc., Right now, the diagnosis of diseases is mostly from expert's decision. Diagnosis is a major task in clinical science as it is
crucial in determining if a patient is having the disease or not. This in turn decides the suitable path of treatment for disease diagnosis. Applying
machine learning techniques for disease diagnosis using intelligent algorithms has been a hot research area of computer science. This paper throws
a light on the comprehensive survey on the machine learning applications in the medical disease prognosis during the past decades.
