A lobectomy refers to the removal of a single lobe in the lung. The right lung has three lobes, the left has two. As Ginsburg does not have a history of smoking, he said a lung cancer diagnosis was unlikely. She is the vice chair for clinical research in the surgery department at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
According to her bio, Rusch "was among the first women in the country to be board certified in this specialty". She hopes to be back on the court for the start of the next argument session in early January.
How did it get there?
Complicating early detection of that type of cancer is that the lung doesn't usually register pain until the tumor grows fairly large and is therefore harder to treat.
Ginsburg, the eldest judge on the Supreme Court, previously survived both colon and pancreatic cancer, and had a heart stent procedure four years ago.
Finding more than one nodule in a patient's lung, however, does not necessarily mean it's spreading.
How serious could it be?
Because of this history, Flores said it's likely that slow-moving cancer cells from one of those cases spread to her lungs. O'Connor, 88, said in October she is suffering from dementia. It is unclear from the court's statement how long the nodules were there or how quickly they had grown.
During follow-up X-rays from that injury, doctors detected the nodules.
Scans performed at the medical facility showed the 85-year-old showed no signs of disease in the body and no more treatment is planned.
Ginsburg, a Clinton appointee, has now had three cancer surgeries since 1999.
Ginsburg served as a law clerk to the Honorable Edmund L. Palmieri, Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of NY, from 1959-1961.
At the French Ambassador's residence, the 85-year-old Supreme Court Justice sipped champagne, and during an interview Saturday with NPR's Nina Totenberg, her rosy cheeks radiated good health.
Following a screening of "On the Basis of Sex", a film about her when she was a young lawyer, Ginsburg made it clear she doesn't to step down any time soon.
Liu said there's always a risk of recurrence, so Ginsburg will probably be observed.
On Friday afternoon, shortly after her surgery, she cast a decisive vote, refusing to allow the Trump administration to implement its new rules prohibiting people from seeking asylum if they cross the border illegally.
She attended the Medal of Freedom ceremony on November 16, where the late Justice Antonin Scalia, her best friend on the bench, was among those honored at the White House.
At the same time, May's Chief of Staff Gavin Barwell has said that holding a second referendum was "the only way forward". The Labour leader is threatening the motion unless the Prime Minister sets a date for the vote on her Brexit deal today.
He went on: "Let's assume we get a deal, I think Theresa May [.] will go whenever we tap her on the shoulder after March". That's one more than voted for her in 2016 (when there were around a dozen more Conservative MPs).
The report noted that global carbon emissions would need to fall 50 percent by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050. After years of declines, emissions are projected to have increased approximately 2.5 percent this year.
The rate hike decision is widely expected, as the country's jobless rate has fallen to 3.7 percent, the lowest level in decades. In addition, interest-rate sensitive sectors of the USA economy such as housing and autos are under more pressure.
