Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer
Talc is an extremely soft mineral that has long been used in baby and body powders, known as talcum powders. Regular use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene has been shown to increase the risk of developing ovarian cancer.1 Juries have awarded significant amounts to women who developed ovarian cancer after regular use of talcum powder.2 Growing public concerns about health issues related to the use of talcum powder resulted in Johnson & Johnson ending the sale of its talc-based powders in the U.S. and Canada in the spring of 2020.
If you have patients who have been diagnosed with ovarian, uterine, or fallopian tube cancer after regular use of talcum powder, they may be eligible to file a legal claim.
