The U.S. Supreme Court disclosed the progress on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's treatment this Friday. 

The judge is currently seeking treatment at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, located in New York. Ginsburg finished three weeks of radiation treatment. The therapy started last August, after the discovery of a localized cancerous tumor on Ginsburg's pancreas. The out-patient treatment includes stent insertion into Ginsburg's bile duct. 

The doctors who attended to Ginsburg release information, giving an official statement that there is no further evidence of the disease being present anywhere else in Ginsburg's body. The revelation of the localized cancerous tumor and its treatment only comes months after Ginsburg's operation last December. That time, it was for lung cancer. For the past twenty years, Ginsburg has been treated for various forms of cancer. 

The Supreme Court's statement gave details on the three-week course of stereotactic ablative radiation therapy that Ginsburg went through. Admirably, Justice Ginsburg maintains an active schedule, although she canceled her yearly summer visit to Santa Fe. 

Dr. Timothy Cannon, a gastrointestinal Oncology specialist in Virginia, though not involved in Ginsburg's treatment, referring to the Supreme Court's statement of the stereotactic ablative radiation being a cutting-edge cancer treatment. However, he clarifies that it is not a cure for a pancreatic mass. 

Cannon points out that the statement was not complete as it did not say the type of tumor, other than it is a localized cancerous type of tumor. "The mystery is what kind of cancer this is", he commented, "Is it slow-growing metastasis of lung cancer? A recurrence of her pancreatic cancer from 10 years ago or is it new cancer in someone predisposed to getting cancer?" 

US President Donald Trump gives well wishes and kind thoughts to the justice, saying "Our thoughts and prayers are with her. We wish her well. She's strong, she's tough. She's pulled through a lot." 

With energy and humor, Ginsburg sat down for an interview for NPR wherein she tells the story of a senator who felt glee towards Ginsburg's cancer diagnosis, claiming that she'll die in six months. Ginsburg said, "That senator, whose name I have forgotten, is now himself dead, and I", she continued with a grin "am very much alive". 

The Supreme Court will start its new term by October, with justices to return to work by September. Ginsburg has not canceled any of her 11 public events scheduled this September.
