Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just completed three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY, the U.S. Supreme Court disclosed Friday.

A bile duct stent was placed as part of her treatment.

The tumor was "treated definitively and there is no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body", the court said.

During the second term of Democratic President Barack Obama, Ginsburg rebuffed calls from some liberals that she resign to allow the president to appoint a replacement, thereby avoiding the possibility of a Republican filling her seat. In 1999, she was operated on to treat colon cancer. "No further treatment is needed at this time".

She returned to the bench in February and was an active participant in the remaining oral arguments of the court term, which ended in June. Justice Ginsburg will continue to have periodic blood tests and scans. Over time, she also wrote opinions advancing broader civil rights and liberties. The Justice tolerated treatment well.

Pancreatic tumors are usually treated with surgery, but she or her doctors may have chosen not to do that for various reasons, and radiation is a standard treatment if surgery is not done, Pishvaian said.
