Talcum Powder Lawsuits
Talcum Powder May Be Linked To Ovarian Cancer
Though companies like Johnson & Johnson claim that their medicinal products are designed to treat sickness and injury, these alleged antidotes are oftentimes the source of new problems. There is even a possible link between Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Did you know that upwards of 40 percent of women use talcum powder on an occasional basis? It is a seemingly excellent way to reach those areas that the towel can’t dry. Unfortunately, this solution, at least in the form created by Johnson & Johnson, might be more harmful than helpful. It is alleged that the company’s talcum powder causes ovarian cancer.

How Talcum Powder Can Cause Ovarian Cancer
When talcum powder is applied to the genitals, it has the potential to wreak havoc. Its “dangerous” particles can move into the ovaries and stay there for years. These trapped particles often result in serious inflammation and can eventually lead to the growth of cancer cells within the ovaries. A report from the Cancer Prevention Research shows that women who use talcum powder on a regular basis hike their susceptibility to ovarian cancer by over 40 percent.
The Effects of Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer makes a significant impact on a woman’s life. It presents all sorts of physical and emotional health challenges. No one should have to endure this type of pain.
- Symptoms of ovarian cancer include bloating, abdominal pain, feeling full quickly and urinary issues such as urgency. Other common general symptoms include back pain, upset stomach and fatigue.
- Ovarian cancer side effects range from pain and discomfort after surgery to the inability to become pregnant. Once the ovaries are removed, the patient will no longer be able to reproduce. For some, this leads to emotional trauma and ensuing problems.
- There are also chemotherapy side effects like vomiting, nausea, numbness, loss of appetite and headaches. Radiation therapy leads to urinary discomfort, skin changes along the stomach, diarrhea, nausea etc.
Recent Talcum Powder Lawsuits
A Missouri jury recently awarded $72 million to the family of a woman who died from ovarian cancer. The victim, Jackie Fox, had been using Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder before developing the cancer. During the trail, an internal memo from a Johnson & Johnson consultant stated that those who deny the link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder use should be grouped with those who deny that a link exists between smoking cigarettes and cancer. There are over 1,200 similar cases that are still waiting to be heard. This is your opportunity to file a claim and force Johnson & Johnson to pay for its alleged negligence.
