Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, underwent three weeks of radiation treatment for a “localized malignant tumor” found on her pancreas on July 31st.

The US Supreme Court disclosed Friday that Ginsburg received treatment this summer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

 

The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg’s bile duct, according to a statement by the court.

Ginsburg in December of 2018 also had surgery to remove cancer from her left lung.

According to the Daily Mail, Ginsburg was wobbly after her hospital visit.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was seen leaning on a U.S. Marshal after leaving a New York City hospital for tests, DailyMail.com exclusive photos show.

The 86-year-old’s hand was held by the Marshal as she walked up the stairs into a private residence on the Upper East Side after her appointment at the Howard Laboratory at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital on Thursday.

Ginsburg is a three-time cancer survivor, beating colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and, most recently, lung cancer in 2018.

According to doctors, further tests have shown that the disease has not spread throughout her body.
