Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Treated For Malignant Tumor On Pancreas

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has undergone radiation treatment since Aug. 5 for a malignant tumor on her pancreas, the Supreme Court said Friday, marking her second bout with cancer in the last year and her fourth overall.



The 86-year-old justice “tolerated treatment well. The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in her body,” the court said in a statement. “No further treatment is needed at this time.”

It said she had canceled her usual summer visit to the operas of Santa Fe, N.M.
