It has been revealed that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been undergoing weeks of radiation treatment for a malignant tumor on her pancreas.

According to Fox News,

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has completed three weeks of radiation therapy at a New York City hospital to treat a malignant tumor on her pancreas, the court said Friday.

"The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body," a Court spokesperson said in a statement. "Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time."

An abnormality was detected in early July during a routine blood test, and a subsequent biopsy revealed the tumor.
