“He’s home and he’s fine,” he read a statement from the court’s public information office.
Ginsburg also announced on July 17, after the Supreme Court had ended a box office, that in February an examination had revealed liver damage.
According to his statement, pancreatic cancer in Ginsburg that was treated in 2009 has returned again, this time to the liver, and he tried one of the new immunotherapies for cancer, but failed to reduce the tumors. The fortnightly chemotherapy he is going through is giving “positive results,” he said at the time.
Due to his age and long medical career, Ginsburg’s health has been of great interest given his status as a liberal icon. The prospect of President Donald Trump being able to appoint a third justice to the Supreme Court would also be an important electoral issue.
Ginsburg has had several bouts of cancer. She had radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and had some extreme tumors of a lung in 2018. She had colon cancer in 1999.
