Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a procedure Friday in New York City to remove two nodules on her lung that were determined to be malignant.
The pulmonary lobectomy was performed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to remove the nodules from her left lung. They were discovered during tests in November to diagnose and treat rib fractures Ginsburg sustained from a fall.
There was no evidence of any remaining nodules after the operation was performed and pre-operation scans did not detect disease anywhere else in her body.
She is resting comfortably and no further treatment is planned, according to the press release. She will remain in the hospital for a few days….
