Currently, the nine-member Court already has a five-four conservative majority following Trump's controversial appointment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
"Post-surgery evaluation indicates no evidence of remaining disease, and no further treatment is required", said court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg.
John Malcolm, director of the Heritage Foundation's Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, told Politico that the fight to fill Ginsburg's absence with any conservative would be worse yet.
"If you are replacing Justice Ginsburg with a Trump appointee, that would be akin to replacing Thurgood Marshall with Clarence Thomas", Malcolm stated. "It would mark a large shift in the direction of the Court". In 1999, Ginsburg underwent surgery for colorectal cancer, and 10 years later she was treated for early stages of pancreatic cancer. During both episodes, Ginsburg did not miss a single oral argument.
Though unconfirmed, speculation intensified further still when a handful of verified conservative Twitter accounts began reporting murmurs that an announcement about Ginsburg's retirement could come as soon as today.
Two doctors contacted by Fox News with experience in performing pulmonary lobectomies said, given her age and procedure, a home recovery of about six-to-eight weeks is common - and they would expect the justice to be ready to resume normal duties next month.
"I think a lot of people are getting scared because they are concerned about the balance of the Court", Flores said.
Trump tweeted his well-wishes to her in December. She previously was a Georgia Supreme Court justice, a Georgia solicitor general and a partner at Kirkland & Ellis.
She has otherwise said that she "will do this job as long as [she] can do it full steam".

Ginsburg, who took the unprecedented step of attacking Trump as a candidate, is unlikely to step down willingly, even if incapacitated, meaning the seat would become open only upon her death.
