Skip to comments.Warren Buffett says he has early prostate cancer (Worry not Buffett, Obama to issue a death waiver)

Billionaire Warren Buffett said Tuesday he has been diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer, but he tried to reassure his company's shareholders that the condition is "not remotely life-threatening."
The 81-year-old chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. said in a letter to shareholders that the two-month radiation treatment he and his doctors plan to start in mid-July will restrict his travel but shouldn't otherwise affect his routine.
"I feel great as if I were in my normal excellent health," Buffett said. "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."
Buffett said he was diagnosed April 11 and has received tests including a CAT scan, a bone scan and an MRI. He said the tests showed no indication of cancer elsewhere in his body.

Stage 1 Prostate Cancer. He’ll be fine.
That said, I wish him a full recovery.
(We conservatives are just better people than they are, eh?)
He may bot be sick from the cancer but the treatment, radiation or chemo, will certainly mess your day up.
The IPAB says, “No soup for you!”
Amazing how fast Karma works.
He is a leftwing sellout so “America would be better off without him”.
I’m getting too old to put up with fools and traitors, both of whom are destroying our country by stupidity and by design.
The result is the same for screw them.
Let Buffet pay his billions of dollars in taxes he owes. Maybe then I’ll reconsider my wishes for him.
not to worry. The death panel has determined it is best to keep him alive as the costs to do so is less than the back taxes he owes..
Im getting too old to put up with fools and traitors, both of whom are destroying our country by stupidity and by design.I agree. This crap about wishing someone well who wants to bring you harm is pure lunacy.
We need to be rid of them by whatever means it happens...If it's cancer, so be it.
What's that German word?...Schadenfreude?
Amazing how fast Karma works.
Insider trader, insider traitor, globalist, thief on a monumental scale, won’t even pay the taxes he owes nevermind paying them at a higher rate, fraud, scumbag, etc., etc., etc.. I don’t care what cancer he has, he’ll probably live until he’s 100.
I seem to recall an article in The American Spectator that summarized Buffett’s business dealings thusly: He has built a fortune on sugar, starch, fat, and abortion.
I have more important issues to care about than Buffet’s prostate. Why does he make that public? Imagine he’ll publish a picture of it! Ugh.
He’s 81 already. If he dies of this or that, it doesn’t matter anymore. He has lived a long life already.
They say if a man lives long enough he will get prostate cancer but it probably won’t be what kills him. It’s the young ones it kills.
Anyway, I sincerely hope Warren will still be able to play in his favorite bridge tournament this summer, the Omaha Regional starting July 30. They give away free lunches there! Really.
But I I think its a teachable moment for the country.
Warren Buffett is a hypocrite. He has named his son Howard as his replacement. ( as he pushes other people to sell their business to pay death). Warren will gave Bill Gates his stock for the Gates Foundation, cheating the tax system and being able to control Bershire from the grave and not pay a dime in death taxes.
If he dies the looters at the IRS get to take 55% of his billions in assets. He's worth more (to them) dead than alive!
