Justice Ginsburg Has Cancerous Growth Removed

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a lung procedure to remove a cancerous growth on Friday, according to a Supreme Court release.

The 85-year-old is “resting comfortably” at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. There was no evidence of any remaining disease following the surgery, the court said. There was no evidence of disease elsewhere in Ginsburg’s body.

Ginsburg, the oldest member of the Court, underwent a pulmonary lobectomy on Friday where two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were discovered “incidentally” during tests to treat rib fractures she sustained in a fall last month.
