Over the last twenty years, Soft Computing has developed rapidly as a discipline and method for the dignosis and prognosis in Medical Informatics. This is a review of soft computing in the cancer subdomain of nasopharyngeal carcinoma survival analysis. The analysis of survival data has long been the domain of statistics as can be observed through the number of medical statistics textbooks and journals dedicated to the field. More recently experiments have been performed on using alternative methods for the analysis of survival data on a variety of diseases. One of these methods is the use of soft computing technology. 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 ways of employing unexploited areas of soft computing in NPC cancer.
