Jamie Dimon, the non-smoking head of the biggest bank in the United States, has been diagnosed with throat cancer but will stay involved in the business while he undergoes about eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy treatment, Reuters reported Wednesday.
Dimon, 58, chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co., said the cancer is curable, was caught at an early stage and is confined to “the original site and the adjacent lymph nodes on the right side of his neck”, the report said.
Doctors detected the cancer after Dimon sought medical expertise two weeks ago because he was not feeling well, it said.
The company has various succession plans in place.
