Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent treatment for a pancreatic tumor recently, but a Court spokesperson says she’s just fine now.
Ginsburg underwent “a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy” for “a tumor on her pancreas,” a statement from Kathleen Arberg says about the 86-year-old Justice.

“The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body,” the statement reads.
“No further treatment is needed at this time.”
While the Court wants us to believe the ailing Justice is just fine, she has misled the public in the past.
In November, Ginsburg suffered a fall, breaking ribs. The cancer on her lungs was reportedly found at that time.
In December, Ginsburg told the public she was “fine.”
“It is fine, thank you,” she responded when asked about her health, adding her ribs “are almost repaired,” she said, according to CNN.
Shortly before Christmas, the cancer was disclosed to the public when New York City doctors “removed two cancerous growths” from her left lung. NBC reported.
