Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg back in the hospital

On July 17, Ginsburg, 87, said that her liver cancer has returned and she has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment since May, when lesions were discovered on her liver.

The operation was undertaken "to revise a bile duct stent" that was originally inserted last August at the same hospital, the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, according to the statement.

Ginsburg was treated for pancreatic cancer in 2019 and 2009, for lung cancer in 2018 and colon cancer in 1999.

"According to her doctors, stent revisions are common occurrences and the procedure, performed using endoscopy and medical imaging guidance, was done to minimize the risk of future infection". Her announcement came after being treated for a possible infection at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after having a fever and chills.

Wednesday's statement came nearly two weeks after the judge said she was receiving chemotherapy for a recurrence of cancer but had no plans to retire from the bench.
