Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg announced this week that she is cancer-free after her latest treatments for pancreatic cancer.
“I’m cancer-free. That’s good,” Ginsburg told CNN’s Joan Biskupic.
Supreme - Court - Justice - Weeks - Radiation
The 86-year-old Supreme Court justice underwent three weeks of radiation treatment at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in August 2019 after doctors discovered a cancerous tumor on her pancreas during a routine blood test.
“Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City,” the court’s statement read at the time.
The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 at Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor.”
Statement - Ginsburg - Schedule - Tumor - Evidence
The statement added that Ginsburg maintained an “active schedule” and confirmed that the tumor was treated, leaving “no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body.”
“Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time,” the statement added.

Ginsburg has struggled with her health in recent years, fighting cancer on more than one occasion.
