Talcum Powder Linked To Ovarian Cancer
Scientific studies over the last forty years have revealed that there is a very high chance that using products containing talcum powder on a regular basis can lead to ovarian cancer. Products containing talcum powder generally include body powders and feminine hygiene products such as tampons and pads, but it can also be found on condoms and diaphragms. Because these products are typically used in or on a woman’s genital area, the powder enters the body by way of the vagina. Once inside a woman’s body, the powder can travel up through the vagina and settle in the uterus, fallopian tubes, and/or ovaries, eventually resulting in cancer.
Even though talcum powder is made of ground-up talc, a mineral that occurs naturally in the environment, scientific studies have found that those who use these products have an increased chance of developing ovarian cancer. In some studies, the risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer has been found to increase by approximately thirty percent. However, many women in Austin and nationwide are unaware of this risk and continue to use products containing talcum powder because the manufacturers of these products have failed to warn of their dangers.
Zinda Law Group Can Help Seek The Compensation You Deserve
In recent years, some talcum powder injury claimants have successfully litigated lawsuits against big name manufacturers of talcum powder products such as Johnson & Johnson®. Courts and juries have understood that there is a connection between using talcum powder and ovarian cancer and have believed that the manufacturers of talcum powder products had a duty to warn consumers of the possible danger associated with the use of the products. Those claimants, or their families, who have won their cases against the manufacturers have also been awarded significant monetary damages because the ovarian cancer caused by talcum powder resulted in expensive medical treatment, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and even death in some cases.
Accordingly, if you have been injured because you used a talcum powder product, or think there is a chance that your cancer could be linked to regular use of feminine hygiene products, it is important that you consult with an experienced talcum powder lawyer as soon as possible.
