Case-based reasoning (CBR) has the problem and solution part, this method has being one of the currently used method to problem solving and learning of new cases. Therefore, CBR is seen as a method for problem solving and also as a method to capture new experience and make it immediately available for problem solution. CBRs technique have being used in many fields of studies in medical diagnosis. This research on case-based reasoning system was able to diagnosis and perform therapies for breast cervical and prostate cancer using CBR. The system was built to represent meaningful cases for fast matching in the knowledge base, collecting data’s form medical experts and to give comparative analysis with GA. Data mining (clustering technique) was used to aid diagnosis and treatment of Breast, Cervical and Prostate Cancers i.e. the system was able to differentiate between diseases. The development stage was done using some sets of software tools: PHP programming language, HTML and MySQL database system.
