Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 86, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has just completed three weeks of radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.

Ginsburg's treatment comes several months after she fell in her Supreme Court office last December. Her trip to the doctor at that time revealed two cancerous lung modules that were promptly removed. Yet, her recovery kept her from partaking in oral arguments for several weeks. 

Following the completion of Ginsburg's treatment on Friday, Sloan Kettering said there were no other signs of the disease in her body.

The Supreme Court released the following statement on her condition:

"Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg today completed a three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City," a statement from the Supreme Court read. "The focused radiation treatment began on August 5 and was administered on an outpatient basis to treat a tumor on her pancreas. The abnormality was first detected after a routine blood test in early July, and a biopsy performed on July 31 at Sloan Kettering confirmed a localized malignant tumor.

"As part of her treatment, a bile duct stent was placed. The Justice tolerated treatment well. She cancelled her annual summer visit to Santa Fe, but has otherwise maintained an active schedule. The tumor was treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. No further treatment is needed at this time." (NPR)
