The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are investigating potential talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuits for women throughout the United States.
As a result of failure to warn about the risk of ovarian cancer from talc body powder, financial compensation may be available.
Talc has been used as a cosmetic powder for thousands of years. It is available in numerous body powders, though some companies have switched to corn starch and other substitutes due to concerns over talcum powder health risks.
A number of studies have suggested that side effects of talcum powder as a feminine hygiene product may increase a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer.
Although it appears that Johnson & Johnson and other manufacturers knew or should have known about these potential talcum powder risks for decades, information has been withheld from women.
In 1971, a study found talc inside of 75% of ovarian tumors.
In 1982, a report published by the New York Times suggested that Johnson & Johnson was aware that women may be three times as likely to develop ovarian cancer if they use talcum powder on their genitals.
In 2013, a study published in the medical journal Cancer Prevention Research looked at data on about 2,000 women who used talcum powder on the genital area. The findings suggested that women who use talc body powder may have a 20% to 30% higher risk of ovarian cancer when compared to women who do not use the baby powder or body powder products
Some experts have suggested that more than 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year may be caused by problems with talcum powder.
