Ruth bader Ginsberg treated for pancreatic cancer

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday completed a three-week course of radiation therapy to treat a malignant tumor on her pancreas, the Supreme Court said in a statement.

“The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” the court said. The news comes after Ginsburg was treated for lung cancer late last year.

Ginsburg began her radiation therapy on Aug. 5 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The "abnormality" was detected in early July after a blood test, and a July 31 biopsy "confirmed a localized malignant tumor," the court said.
