Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett says he’s “feeling terrific” following his diagnosis of stage one prostate cancer.
Buffett’s cancer was among the first round of questions fielded Saturday morning at Berkshire’s annual shareholders meeting. The 81-year-old Buffett announced last month he had stage one prostate cancer, and will begin treatment in July. He told shareholders that he has four doctors, who’ve told him he won’t need to be hospitalized or take a day off work.
Buffett told shareholders in a letter released Tuesday afternoon of his diagnosis. In the letter, the 81-year-old Buffett says "the good news is I've been told by my doctors that my condition is not remotely life-threatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way."
Buffett says he was diagnosed last Wednesday. Last Thursday, he had a CT scan and a bone scan. That was followed Tuesday by a MRI.
