Modern medicine generates a great deal of information stored in the medical database. Extracting useful knowledge and providing scientific decision making for the diagnosis and treatment of disease from the database increasingly becomes necessary. In India most of the people suffering cancer diseases. Using association rule mining for constructing classification system for diagnosing cancer diseases is a promising approach. A detailed survey shows that a combined approach which integrates the Fuzzy weighted association mining and information gain method may be used to find the associated attribute based on information gain which assigns a weight value to support ,confidence measure and also a fuzzy association mining rule may be used to classify the cancer diseases. This approach would provide a better accuracy compared to other association rule mining technique.
