Warren Buffett, a billionaire investor and the Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRKa: Quote, BRKb), has completed his final radiation treatment for prostate cancer, according to the several reports.
In April, Buffett revealed that he has been diagnosed with stage I prostate cancer that is "not remotely lifethreatening or even debilitating in any meaningful way." Buffet and his doctors had planned for a two-month treatment of daily radiation beginning mid-July.
Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. Most prostate cancers are slow growing; however, there are cases of aggressive prostate cancers.
In late-February, Buffett had said the board identified an individual to succeed him as CEO. The only information Buffett gave was that the person was for a long time seen as a potential candidate by the board. The incumbent would be from one of heads of Berkshire's operating companies.
