Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg to Have Chemotherapy

Rate This

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had surgery in February for pancreatic cancer, says she will begin chemotherapy later this month.

She said the treatment is precautionary and doesn't expect to miss any court sessions, the Associated Press reported.

Ginsburg, 76, had surgery last month to remove a small cancerous growth from her pancreas. The cancer had not spread beyond the organ, test results showed. After she completes her chemotherapy, Ginsburg said she'll require only routines exams.

She had surgery for colorectal cancer in 1999 and underwent follow-up chemotherapy and radiation treatment, the AP reported.
