General programming advice on how to create a software with database

I have a little programming experience mainly using Borland C++ in the past. I am nowadays trying to create a software which mainly will do the following :

- The user will select a list of variables (e.g. symptoms of a disease)
- The software will list the possible disease according to the symptoms selected
- The software will suggest a proper therapy.

And this should go vice versa . (e.g. selecting a therapy , then the software will automatically list the diseases which can be treated with this therapy, or selecting a disease and then the software will automatically list the symptoms etc.)

My question is rather very general: What programming language (or database?) should I use / or what do I have to study in order to gain the proper knoweldge to build this software in the best way? Thanks a lot.

This could definitely be done with Microsoft Access (Database).

You will get really excellent help here on EE in the Access zone.
There are quite a few highly qualified experts (Microsoft MVPs) who monitor all questions in that zone.

Your first question should outline your project (as you have already done) and ask for help
in the design of your database tables and relationships.
