WASHINGTON (CNN) – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will undergo chemotherapy to combat pancreatic cancer, the Supreme Court announced Tuesday.

“I am scheduled to undergo a precautionary post-surgical course of chemotherapy at the National Institutes of Health,” Ginsburg said in a statement released by the Court.

The treatments will commence in late March, “and are not expected to affect my schedule at the Court,” she said.

Ginsburg underwent surgery last month for the condition, but was back on the bench within days.
