Talcum Powder Lawsuits

If you or a loved one has developed ovarian cancer after using Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower To Shower, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.

According to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, the use of talcum powder on the genital region has been linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer due to its chemical similarity to asbestos. For decades, there has been concern regarding the use of talcum powder on the genital region – Harvard pathologist, Dr. Daniel W. Cramer, was the first to discover conclusive evidence linking talcum powder use to ovarian cancer. The Journal of Cancer Prevention Research published a similar study in 2013. A study conducted at Bingham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that women who used talc to powder their intimate area had a 33% higher risk of ovarian cancer.

Talcum powder is made primarily from talc, a mineral containing the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. Used in baby and facial powders, cosmetics, and other consumer products, talc absorbs moisture and can be used to reduce chafing against the skin. But despite its wide use for decades, talcum powder has been linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer in some women. Anyone who uses a talcum-based product for regular perineal use both short and long term can be at potential risk. Patients who have used talcum powders for longer periods of time are at the greatest risk.
