The Supreme Court announced that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had two nodules removed from her lungs in a surgical procedure.


The 85-year-old liberal justice underwent a pulmonary lobectomy in New York City on Friday.

"Post-surgery, there was no evidence of any remaining disease," according to a statement from the court. "Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. Currently, no further treatment is planned."

The growths were discovered during tests last month to treat rib fractures she sustained in a fall in November.
