Warren Buffett has Stage 1 prostate cancer

(Reuters) - Berkshire Hathaway Inc's Warren Buffett disclosed on Tuesday that he has stage 1 prostate cancer but said his condition "is not remotely life-threatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way."

Buffett said he will begin a two-month treatment consisting of daily radiation treatments starting in mid-July. This will limit his ability to travel during that time, he said in a statement.
