Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Cancer Growths Removed From Lung
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a cancerous growth removed from her lung during a procedure at at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
The Supreme Court said in a press release that the 85-year-old justice is “resting comfortably,” and there was no evidence of disease elsewhere in her body, notes CNBC.
Surgeons reportedly performed a pulmonary lobectomy to remove two malignant nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung, which were discovered “incidentally” during treatment for three rib fractures that she sustained in a fall on Nov. 7.
Ginsburg did not miss any oral arguments at the high court because of her injury. She has survived multiple bouts with cancer.
