Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has said in a letter to shareholders that he has been diagnosed with stage one prostate cancer.



He said that on 11 April cancer was detected and after that he undergone a CAT scan, bone scan and MRI.

He would begin a two-month course of daily radiation treatment from mid-July.

The cancer was detected in a routine test,
The cancer is not life threatening

Read the letter written by Buffet to share holders

To the Shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway:

This is to let you know that I have been diagnosed with stage I prostate cancer. The good news is that I've been told by my doctors that my condition is not remotely life threatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way. I received my diagnosis last Wednesday. I then had a CAT scan and a bone scan on Thursday, followed by an MRI today. These tests showed no incidence of cancer elsewhere in my body.

My doctors and I have decided on a two-month treatment of daily radiation to begin in mid-July. This regimen will restrict my travel during that period, but will not otherwise change my daily routine.

I feel great - as if I were in my normal excellent health - and my energy level is 100 percent. I discovered the cancer because my PSA level (an indicator my doctors had regularly checked for many years) recently jumped beyond its normal elevation and a biopsy seemed warranted.

I will let shareholders know immediately should my health situation change. Eventually, of course, it will; but I believe that day is a long way off.

Warren E. Buffett

Should be cured fully as energy level also helps heal.

I'm happy that he's better. I just hope he would donate more of his money to charity or America's shrinking middle class :(

Cancer ruins everything, I hope that Mr. Buffet gets through this easily.

What I know of him is from articles and self study. He seems to be a straight man who like hitting the challenges in the center and make money using wisdom and brain.
