    Warren Buffett, 81, announced Tuesday that he has been diagnosed with stage I prostate cancer, but that doctors say his condition is not life-threatening. In a letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, Buffett wrote that he will undergo two months of daily radiation for treatment starting in mid-July, which will “restrict my travel during that period but will not otherwise change my daily routine.” Buffett added, “I feel great” and that he would let shareholders know if his health took a turn for the worse, but for now believes “that day is a long way off.”
