“She is home and doing well,” a statement from the court’s public information office read.
Ginsburg also announced on July 17 – after the Supreme Court had completed a blockbuster term – that a scan in February had revealed lesions on her liver.
According to her statement, the pancreatic cancer Ginsburg was treated for in 2009 has returned again, this time in her liver, and she tried one of the new immunotherapies for cancer, but it failed to shrink the tumors. The biweekly chemotherapy she is undergoing is yielding “positive results,” she said at the time.
Due to her age and long medical history, Ginsburg’s health has drawn widespread interest given her status as a liberal icon. The prospect that President Donald Trump could name a third justice to the Supreme Court would also be a major election issue.
Ginsburg has had several bouts with cancer. She had radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and had some tumors taken out of a lung in 2018. She had colon cancer in 1999.
