Ruth Bader Ginsburg Undergoes Surgery for Cancer

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has had surgery to remove two cancerous nodules in her lungs.

These were found a few weeks ago when she was undergoing treatment for a fall in which she sustained broken ribs on her left side.

The pulmonary lobectomy surgery occurred Friday morning at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

We’re told margins were clear and the cancer does not appear to have spread to other parts of the body.

The 85-year-old Justice has previously battled colon and pancreatic cancer.

Broken ribs can occur from trauma such as a fall, or as a result of pathological fractures such as those from cancer.

This is a developing story.
