Over the last twenty years, Soft Computing has developed rapidly as a discipline and method for the diagnosis and prognosis in Medical Informatics. This is a review of soft computing in the cancer subdomain of nasopharyngeal carcinoma cancer. An overview of the major categories of soft computing techniques is presented, and instances of these in NPC cancer research are discussed. An insight into the plausible makeup of NPC data, for current and future systems is presented. The review concludes by highlighting methods of employing unexploited areas of soft computing in NPC cancer. The research of Abdul Kareem group is the only research who applied artificial neural network and genetic algorithm to the NPC prognosis domain as well as considered a first step towards establishing a medical informatics research group and an attempt to increase the participation of Malaysians in the area of medical informatics by investigating the role of artificial Intelligence techniques as a cancer prognosticator.
