Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, is said to be resting comfortable at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in New York, after undergoing a “lung procedure to remove a cancerous growth,” CNBC News reported Friday.

In a statement from the Court the “two nodules in the lower lobe of her left lung,” were discovered when the Justice was hospitalized with three fractured ribs, following a fall in her office in November.

The statement goes on to say that “post-surgery there was no evidence of any remaining disease.

As of now the statement explains that “no further treatment is planned,” and that Justice Ginsburg will remain in the hospital for a few days as she recovers.

The court said updates will be provided when they become available.
