Are you a regular user of baby powder or other body and facial powders? Do you know whether the product you use contains talcum powder? If so, then you may be at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer, if you haven’t already.
Scientists have been studying the connection between talcum powder products and the risk of developing ovarian cancer for more than 40 years. Recent studies suggest that if you use talcum powder products, your chances of developing ovarian cancer are increased by as much as 30 percent.
If you have been recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and you have used products containing talcum powder in the past, then you may be a victim of the manufacturers that continue to put these products on store shelves without warning consumers of the possible dangers associated with their use.

Talcum Powder Products and Ovarian Cancer
Talcum powder is derived from talc, which is a naturally occurring mineral. Talc is ground up to form a powder that is often used in products like Valeant Pharmaceuticals’ Shower to Shower®, and Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder®.
Talcum powder can also be found in and on feminine hygiene products like sanitary napkins, diaphragms, and even condoms. Since many of these products are used in and around a woman’s genital area, the talcum powder is able to enter the body by way of the vagina and can settle in a woman’s uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes.
It is thought that these foreign talcum powder particles in the body can be a cause of cancer. Some scientists have even found talcum particles in the tumors and lymph nodes of the ovarian cancer patients that they were studying.
Unfortunately, despite the studies linking talcum powder to ovarian cancer, products containing talcum powder are largely unregulated and manufacturers continue to fail to warn consumers of the dangers associated with using the products.
You May Be Entitled To Compensation
While cancer of the ovaries is not the most common form of cancer, it is often thought of as one of the most fatal because it can be so hard to detect.
Once diagnosed with the disease, patients typically endure extensive and expensive medical treatment. Thus, an ovarian cancer diagnosis should not be taken lightly. But if you have been a user of talcum powder products in the past, there is a chance that you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and treatment. Especially if you are successful in proving that the manufacturers of these products have some responsibility for your illness. If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, be sure to contact an experienced San Antonio talcum powder lawyer today at 210-390-0742 to discuss your potential claim!
