Supreme Court's Ginsburg to have Chemotherapy
US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is to have chemotherapy following her surgery for pancreatic cancer.
She underwent surgery in February to remove a lesion from her pancreas.
The supreme court justice is the only female member of the nine-member court.
"I am scheduled to undergo a precautionary, post-surgery course of chemotherapy at the National Institutes of Health," Ginsburg, 76, said in a statement released by the court.
"The treatments, which will commence in late March, are not expected to affect my schedule at the court. Thereafter, it is anticipated that I will require only routine examinations to assure my continuing good health."
The liberal Ginsburg was appointed to the court in 1993 by Democratic President Bill Clinton. She had colon cancer in 1999 and was treated with chemotherapy and radiation at that time.
Her pancreatic cancer surgery last month raised questions about how much longer she will stay in her job and when President Barack Obama might get his first chance to make an appointment to the nation's highest court.
