Justice Ginsburg undergoes lung procedure to remove cancerous growth

Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY found "no evidence of any remaining disease" and scans taken before the surgery showed no cancerous growths elsewhere in her body, the court said.

Here's a look at the procedure Ginsburg had done and what's next for the justice in her recovery.

It's Ginsburg's third bout with cancer since she joined the court in 1993. When he nominated her to the nation's highest court, Clinton compared her legal work to promote women's rights to the work of former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall's on behalf of African-Americans.

"Almost no one dies these days within two years for localized lung cancer", said Shrager, who was not involved in Ginsburg's care. She had two malignant growths removed from her left lung. "So there's something important in there that doctors thought it was okay to wait six weeks", Gupta said. "While there is a risk of recurrence, I would expect that she is cured of her cancer and will be back on her feet working relatively soon". The justices do not return for official business until January 4. Ginsburg later expressed regret for her comments, saying "judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office". This means she is essentially cancer free now that the nodules have been removed.

Ginsburg is the subject of a recent documentary on her life, RBG, and an upcoming motion picture On the Basis of Sex. She revealed that she had returned to her physical trainer "immediately" after the fall, but they did "legs only".

She underwent a pulmonary lobotomy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in NY, on December 21.

The growths were found incidentally during tests Ginsburg had after she fractured ribs in a fall in her Supreme Court office on November 7, the court said.

Friday, Justice Ginsburg's surgeon confirmed that the nodes were removed during surgery and on initial testing were found to be malignant.

A pulmonary lobectomy like the one reportedly done on Ginsburg is surgery done to remove a part of the lung that is diseased.

After the surgery, there was "no evidence of any remaining disease", Arberg added. No additional treatment is now planned, it said.

She is expected to remain hospitalized for a few days.
