A Cancer Doctor Explains RBG’s Surgery

Earlier today it was reported that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove cancerous nodules from her lungs, which were discovered following Ginsburg’s earlier hospitalization for broken ribs. To learn more about what a procedure like this one involves, the Cut spoke to Raja Flores, chair of thoracic surgery at Mount Sinai in New York.

Ginsburg had had surgery a while back, I think seven or eight years ago [it was in 2009], something called a whipple resection for pancreatic cancer. Now, they went in there after she had some broken ribs, and they got a scan, and saw these nodules in there. They just did a lobectomy to take them out, and found two different cancers there. So when you see two different cancers in the lung, the question is, did they come from someplace else? Is this spread from her pancreatic cancer into her lungs?
