“She is at home and doing well,” read a statement from the court’s public information office.
Ginsburg also announced on July 17 – after completing a blockbuster stint by the Supreme Court – that a scan in February revealed lesions in his liver.
According to his statement, Ginsberg, who was treated for pancreatic cancer in 2009, is back in his liver again, and he tried a new immunotherapy for the cancer, but it failed to shrink the tumor. He said that biochemical chemotherapy is giving positive results at that time.
Due to his age and long medical history, Ginsburg’s health has ranked him as a widespread icon. The possibility that President Donald Trump could name a third justice in the Supreme Court would be a major electoral issue.
Ginsberg has had several encounters with cancer. He underwent radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and had a few tumors removed from the lung in 2018. He had colon cancer in 1999.
