“He is at home and works well,” a statement from the public information office in court read.
Ginsburg also announced on July 17 – after the Supreme Court completed a blockbuster term – that a scan in February revealed lesions on his liver.
According to his statement, Ginsburg pancreatic cancer being treated for 2009 is back again, this time in his liver, and he tried one of the new immunotherapies for cancer, but it failed to minimize tumors. The biweekly chemotherapy she was undergoing yielded “positive results,” she said at the time.
Due to his age and long medical history, Ginsburg’s health gained widespread interest given his status as a liberal icon. The prospect that President Donald Trump can name a third justice in the Supreme Court will be a major election issue.
Ginsburg has had many cancer fights. He underwent radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and had several tumors acquired from a lung in 2018. He had colon cancer in 1999.
