Buffett’s Prostate Cancer Is Not a Death Knell

Warren Buffett has announced to shareholders that he has the most common cancer in men, Stage 1 prostate cancer.

The information he released is insufficient to determine prognosis let alone what treatment is needed, if any. However, statistics are generally on Mr. Buttett’s side.

Autopsy studies show that most men will eventually present with prostate cancer. The good news is that the vast majority of them don’t succumb to the disease–even without treatment.
