Mr. Buffett’s Decision

Warren Buffett was recently diagnosed with early stage prostate cancer at age 81 and we are being told he has decided to have external radiation therapy. Many people are questioning why someone with an average life expectancy of 7-8 years would make that decision, especially because of the usually slow progression of early stage disease. Although it is reasonable to ask these questions, people should be cautious because in their criticism because we haven’t been told enough about his tumor. While nearly 80% of new cases will indeed progress slowly, about 12% of men could have a more aggressive tumor that carries a five year mortality rate of 30-40% if left untreated. Maybe we will learn more and perhaps he will even read my book on WINNING THE BATTLE AGAINST PROSTATE CANCER that I sent to him.
