Warren Buffett told shareholders in an open letter he has been diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer.
The 81-year-old billionaire investor and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway said in the letter, released today, that his condition is “not remotely life-threatening” or debilitating.
Mr Buffett’s letter said he and his doctors have decided on a two-month treatment plan to begin in mid-July.
Mr Buffett said he was diagnosed on April 11 and has received tests including a CAT scan, a bone scan and an MRI.
He said he feels “great – as if I were in my normal excellent health”.
The cancer was detected with a routine prostate cancer test.
