Talcum Powder Causing Serous Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

Serous ovarian cancer is another form of ovarian cancer that has been linked to cosmetic use of products containing talcum powder.

Prognosis for serous ovarian cancer is quite poor, due largely in part to it often not being diagnosed until it has already spread.

Serous ovarian cancer can be particularly troubling because it is often resistant to common treatment including radiation and chemotherapy.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Talcum Powder Lawsuit?

As many as 2,200 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year may have been caused by regular use of talcum powder.

Talc is a mineral made of up various elements including magnesium, silicon and oxygen. Talc is ground to make talcum powder which is used to absorb moisture and is widely available in various products including baby powder and adult products including body and facial powder.

Talc products used regularly in the genital area increase the risk of ovarian cancer.

In February 2016, a jury found Johnson & Johnson knew of the cancer risks associated with its talc products but failed to warn consumers, and awarded the family of our client $72 million. She died of ovarian cancer after using J&J talc-containing products for more than 30 years.

The criteria for filing a talcum powder lawsuit include the following:

  • Must be female
  • Regularly used Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower Body Powder in the genital area
  • Has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer
