Investigating Ovarian Cancer and Talcum Powder Cases Requires Experience, Expertise and Resources
Filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of a talcum powder containing product, alleging that the product caused your ovarian cancer, can be challenging. To be sure, the exact causes of ovarian cancer are often difficult – if not impossible – to pinpoint. Because of the complicated nature of investigating the cause of ovarian cancer and its link to talcum powder, you need a law firm on your side who is not only passionate, but has the right resources and years’ worth of experience.
Your claim will require a number of investigative experts, including medical experts who can testify regarding the cause and extent of your ovarian cancer. Witnesses who can corroborate your use of talcum powder will also need to be called upon, as well as legal experts who can highlight the negligence of the talcum powder manufacturer. Proper handling of the evidence and data that is collected is also essential, as is organization of that evidence in a manner that builds a strong claim. Legal secretaries, paralegals, and more will all be critical for this.

We have the finances necessary to conduct a proper investigation and prove causation. Our attorneys have what it takes to defend your rights during a lawsuit against the manufacturer of a dangerous talc-containing product. While we know that taking legal action can be scary, we will work with you to help you overcome your fears and understand your rights.
Common Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer Caused by Talcum Powder
Women who have applied talcum powder to their genitals for many years (at least 4) may be at an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Some of the common side effects and complications of ovarian cancer include:
Any vaginal bleeding that is not caused by menstruation, or vaginal discharge that is abnormal, may be a sign of ovarian cancer and should be assessed by a medical professional.
Change in bowel and bladder habits
If your bowel or bladder habits have recently made a dramatic change – for example, you all of a sudden have to use the restroom frequently or have diarrhea – this could be a sign of ovarian cancer.
Pain in the pelvic region, the back, and the abdominal area are all common symptoms of ovarian cancer.
Bloating and pressure
If you are suffering from a consistent feeling of bloating in your stomach, feel unusually full when eating, or feel as though there is pressure within your stomach, you should seek the opinion of a medical professional.
Talcum Powder Facts
Talcum powder has been used for decades in hygiene products. Two of the most popular products which contain talcum powder are Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.
In December 2018, Reuters published an investigation on the thousands of lawsuits filed against pharmaceutical conglomerate, Johnson & Johnson, alleging that its talcum powder caused cancer. Reuters reported that the company’s powder was sometimes tainted with asbestos, a known carcinogen, and that Johnson & Johnson withheld this information from regulators and the public.
For more than 30 years, scientists have been publishing data linking the diagnosis of ovarian cancer to the use of talcum powder. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has stated that talc that contains asbestos is “carcinogenic to humans.” Regular use of talc products in the perineal (genital) area could lead to the increase of ovarian cancer. If you are a woman who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and believe that that ovarian cancer may have been caused as a result of your consistent use of talcum powder, you might have a lawsuit for damages.
Additionally, if you are a man or a woman who used talcum powder and has been diagnosed mesothelioma, you might have a lawsuit for damages.
