Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer Link
In 2006, the International Agency for Research on Cancer recognized talc as a possible carcinogen if used by women in the genital area. Talc is the main ingredient in talcum powder – a substance milled into powder from magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. In natural form, talc has been found to potentially contain asbestos, another known cancer-causing substance.
Prior to the 2006 news from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a study performed in 1971 found traces of talc in ovarian and cervical cancer tumors. Since then, other studies have formed the link between talc and talcum powder to ovarian cancer and cancers of the cervix.
Ovarian cancer is a very serious form of cancer affecting women. It is often hard to diagnose, which can allow cancer to reach a later stage before being treated. Women that are experiencing symptoms are encouraged to take them seriously and consult a doctor. They are:
- Pelvic and abdominal pain
- Need to urinate frequently
- Menstrual changes

- Weight loss

Talcum Powder Lawsuit FAQs
What Are My Options If I Have Been Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer After Using Johnson & Johnson or Shower to Shower Talcum Powder?
Manufacturers, like Johnson & Johnson, have a legal duty to ensure that their products are safe and to warn consumers of any potential risks. If a manufacturer failed to meet these obligations, and you were injured as a result, you can hold them, and other entities in the product’s line of distribution, liable to compensate you for your injuries.
A skilled attorney who has experience handling product liability claims can help prove liability on the part of the manufacturer and other entities in the product’s supply chain. Furthermore, if your attorney can demonstrate that these entities owed you a duty of care but breached it, directly resulting in your injuries, you have a right to be compensated.
What Should I Do After I Suspect My Cancer Was Caused By a Talcum Powder Product?
First and foremost, take care of your health. Then, when you are ready to hold the manufacturer and other entities in the product’s supply chain accountable for what they did to you and your family, get Bighorn law involved so that we can help you file a lawsuit against the liable parties to obtain compensation for your injuries and losses.
