For approximately 40 years, scientists have linked the use of products that contain talcum powder with ovarian cancer. Some studies even suggest that daily use of these products can increase a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer by more than forty percent. This statistic is significant given that ovarian cancer is a serious illness, yet manufacturers of talcum powder products, like Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder® and Valeant Pharmaceuticals’ Shower to Shower ®, fail to provide consumers with any warning about the risks of using their products.
If you have used talcum powder products in the past and were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, it is important that you contact an experienced talcum powder lawyer as soon as possible. The attorneys at Zinda Law Group of Tucson are already investigating claims and preparing cases involving talcum powder injuries. They are ready to review the evidence and help you determine the best strategy for a successful outcome in your talcum powder lawsuit.
Talcum Powder Products Role in Ovarian Cancer
Products that typically contain talcum powder include feminine hygiene products like pads or tampons, facial powders, body and baby powders, and even condoms and female diaphragms. Because all or most of these products are generally used in the female genital area, the powder in the products can enter the body through the vagina and eventually end up in the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes. The powder is often thought to be a cause of cancer because talcum powder particles have been found in the lymph nodes and tumors of ovarian cancer patients.
While ovarian cancer is not the most common form of cancer, it is among the hardest to detect. A diagnosis can lead to extensive medical treatment and if caught too late patients may be unable to be treated successfully. Thus, ovarian cancer has devastating and serious consequences and should not be taken lightly.

Because treatment for ovarian cancer can be extensive, medical expenses add up over time. This results in large medical bills and other significant costs associated with recovery, therapy, or lost wages. While a lawsuit will not cure cancer, a successful claim can at least alleviate some of the pressure and anxiety that comes along with having to deal with finances.
Fortunately, in recent years, several lawsuits against talcum powder product manufacturers have been successful. This resulted in large monetary awards for women claimants who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer that was thought to be linked to using talcum powder products. In most of these successful lawsuits, the jury believed the testimony of experts linking talcum powder use to ovarian cancer. They also held the manufacturers of the products responsible for the claimants’ injuries because the manufacturers failed to warn consumers of the potential dangers associated with using the talcum powder products.
If you have developed ovarian cancer, and used products containing talcum powder, it is possible that your cancer may be connected to the use of those products.
