Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawyers

More than four decades of medical literature document the link between talcum powder use and ovarian cancer. One expert estimates that more than 10,000 women each year develop ovarian cancer as a result of using baby powder or body powder that contains talc.

If you’ve been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and think it could be linked to your use of talc-based baby powder, you may be entitled to compensation.

What are the risks?

When talc products such as baby powder are used in the genital region, talc particles can travel through the female reproductive system to the ovaries. Talc particles that stay in the ovaries for many years, can cause inflammation, creating an environment that is favorable for the growth of cancer cells.
Women who have used talc-based baby powder on a weekly basis face a 33% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer, while women who have used talcum powder on a daily basis face a 41% increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Researchers have known for more than thirty years that using talcum powder in the genital area is associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer. However, the substance is not regulated in the United States and no product warning labels are attached to talcum powder products.
