Ovarian cancer lawsuits are being filed by consumer who used this dangerous product. Talcum Powder, also known as baby powder, is often used by people after a bath to help absorb moisture and prevent rashes. Women often use it in the perineum area. The main ingredient in talcum powder is Talc, a mineral mainly comprised of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. It is the softest mineral on earth and found all over the world.
There have been increasing complaints about talcum powder and serous ovarian cancer. It is believed that particles in the talcum powder can travel into the vagina and up the uterus to the fallopian tubes and ovaries. Regular long-term talcum powder use has been associated with an increased risk of serous ovarian cancer, which starts in the fallopian tubes. Serous ovarian cancer resembles mesothelioma, cancer in the lungs caused by asbestos, under a microscope. This is likely because talc and the carcinogen asbestos are chemically similar.
Studies have shown that talcum powder increases the risk of serous ovarian cancer. Serous ovarian cancer is usually not diagnosed until symptoms appear and after the cancer has spread throughout the abdomen which makes the prognosis poor. It often becomes resistant to treatment or women who go into remission relapse.
