Buffett: My cancer treatment is done

New York (CNNMoney) - Billionaire investor Warren Buffett says he has completed treatment for a mild case of prostate cancer, according to a published report.

Speaking Friday to executives of newspapers he has recently acquired, Buffett was quoted by The Omaha World-Herald as saying "It's a great day for me. Today I had my 44th and last day of radiation." The World-Herald is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, Buffett's investing company.

    Prostate cancer is not labeled as "mild." There is an early stage which one can live with for a long time without surgery or treatment. Don't diagnose yourself or make decisions after reading about the possibly unnecessary surgery of a very old man, who would most likely have died of something else before the cancer advanced. His surgeon was probably milking him for money instead of giving him sound advice you can find anywhere.

    Congrats, Mr. Buffett and many thanks to the doctors who cared for you. My brother too, who suffered the same, just completed his care successfully which proves you don't have to be a millionaire, you just have to have health insurance and he did. Carry on Mr. Buffett, FORWARD.

    Very few people know that Mr. Buffet lives in the same modest house that he had lived in for the last 30 years. He also has publicly said he'll leave most of his money to charities and will not leave anything to his kids! The likes of Romeny can learn so much from him!

    Any cancer is a bad cancer. Congratulations and stay well. Cancer research and clinical trials are the key.
