Earlier this week, Ginsburg was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after having a fever and chills, and undergoing an “endoscopic procedure to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August,” the court said at the time.
Ginsburg said her cancer treatment is unrelated to this week’s incident.
Friday’s statement indicates that the pancreatic cancer Ginsburg was treated for in 2009 has returned again, this time in her liver, and that she tried one of the new immunotherapies for cancer, but it failed to shrink the tumors. It is not liver cancer.
