According to her statement, the pancreatic cancer that Ginsburg was treated for in 2009 has returned, this time in her liver, and she has tried one of the new cancer immunotherapies, but she has not been able to reduce the size of the tumors. The bi-weekly chemotherapy she goes through leads to “positive results,” she said at the time.
Due to her age and long medical history, Ginsburg’s health has aroused great interest due to her status as a liberal icon. The prospect that President Donald Trump could appoint a third judge to the Supreme Court would also be an important election problem.
Ginsburg has had several seizures with cancer. She had radiation therapy for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and some tumors from one lung in 2018. In 1999 she had colon cancer.
