U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery today after she was diagnosed with early-stage pancreatic cancer, according to a court news release.
The court said that Ginsburg, 75, underwent surgery at the Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center in New York City; her surgeon Murray Brennan said she would likely remain in the hospital for a week to 10 days.
According to the court statement, a CAT (computerized axial tomography) scan "revealed a small tumor" measuring about 0.4 inch (one centimeter) in the center of Ginsburg's pancreas during a routine annual exam late last month at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md. The court said that Ginsburg "had no symptoms prior to the incidental discovery of the lesion."
