JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon has been diagnosed with throat cancer, according to multiple reports.

Dimon's cancer was revealed in a memo emailed to the company's employees on Tuesday. In the email, Dimon said that the cancer is "curable" and "the prognosis from doctors is excellent," according to Forbes.

Dimon, who reportedly will undergo roughly eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy, also "will continue to be actively involved" in the company, according to a portion of the email cited by fastFT.
