Warren Buffett cancer diagnosis

DailyStockDeals – (Market News) – Berkshire announced Tuesday that the 81-year-old Buffett has Stage 1 prostate cancer and will begin radiation treatments in mid-July. It is considered to be the mildest form of prostate cancer, with doctors simply monitoring the normally slow-growing tumors to ensure patient conditions don’t worsen.

“I’ve been told by my doctors that my condition is not remotely life-threatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way,” Buffett wrote in a letter to shareholders posted on Berkshire’s website. “I feel great — as if I were in my normal excellent health — and my energy level is 100%.”
