Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer

File a Claim with Our Elite Trial Attorneys

For nearly a century, women have been using talcum powder for feminine hygiene. However, in 1971 a study found that talc fibers, the central ingredient of talcum powder, could cause cancer if the fibers enter the vagina and travel to the ovaries.

Talc is a natural mineral that the body has difficulty removing. As a result, talc fibers can remain in the body for decades. They cause inflammation, which leads to the development of tumors. This is how many researchers believe talc can lead to ovarian cancer.

In more than 20 studies conducted over the course of 30 years, researchers found talc fibers in the ovarian cysts of women who used talcum powder for feminine hygiene. Currently, the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society consider the use of talcum powder on the genitals a risk factor for ovarian cancer.

Popular talcum powder products include:

  • Shower to Shower
  • Johnson’s Baby Powder

Johnson & Johnson is currently facing hundreds of lawsuits because of their refusal to label their product with adequate warnings about ovarian cancer. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have a history of using talcum powder, call The Simon Law Firm, P.C.
