Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, who has had two bouts with cancer, had surgery Friday morning for two malignant nodules in her left lung, according to a court spokeswoman said.
The spokeswoman added that Ginsburg is “resting comfortably” post-surgery.
The surgery was performed in New York, at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung were discovered incidentally during tests performed at George Washington University Hospital after Ginsburg fell and broke her ribs on Nov. 7, the court said.
“Post-surgery, there was no evidence of any remaining disease,” the court said in a news release. “Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Currently, no further treatment is planned. Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.”
