The Supreme Court’s communications apparatus is reporting that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery to have cancerous nodules removed from her lungs.

The press release seems to say 1) the cancer was very localized in the lung, 2) there is no evidence of metastasis, and 3) she will not be undergoing any variety of chemotherapy.
Cancer treatment is not my specialty and cancer treatment of 85 year old patients is definitely outside my expertise. So I have no insight to offer beyond what I read.
Doctors say, short of complications, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's prospects for a full recovery look good after she underwent surgery for early stage lung cancer today. The cancer was discovered after she fell and fractured several ribs in Nov.https://t.co/2WCw5bhwWm

For the sake of your own humanity, don’t dislike anyone’s political leanings enough to want them to die of cancer.
