Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was seen leaning on a U.S. Marshall after leaving a New York City hospital for tests, DailyMail.com exclusive photos show. 

The 86-year-old's hand was held by the Marshall as she walked up the stairs into a private residence on the Upper East Side after her appointment at the Howard Laboratory at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital on Thursday. 

Ginsburg is a three-time cancer survivor, beating colon cancer in 1999, pancreatic cancer in 2009 and, most recently, lung cancer in 2018.

Ginsburg is the oldest sitting U.S. Supreme Court Justice and said it is her 'dream' to be on the Supreme Court for as long as former Justice John Paul Stevens, who served for 35 years. Ginsburg has served for 26 years so far.

After her appointment, she was dropped off at a private residence on the Upper East Side.

Last month Ginsburg dismissed concerns regarding her health in an interview with NPR, sneering at a late senator who claimed she would be dead soon after her pancreatic cancer diagnosis in 2009.
