Talc Cancer Attorney
Develop Ovarian Cancer? Call About a Talcum Powder Lawsuit!
Are you a woman who uses or has used talcum powder as a hygienic product on your genital region? Did you develop ovarian cancer? There may be a connection between talcum powder usage and the risk of ovarian cancer.
In 1999, the American Cancer Society expressed concerns regarding talc and its potential to increase the risk of cancer. The Foundation for Consumers is pushing for additional label warnings that inform consumers that talcum powder use could lead to ovarian cancer. Recent studies have shown that the chances of developing ovarian cancer increase one-third over normal rates in women who use talcum powder as a hygienic product on their genitals.
Common brands of talcum powder include:
- Johnson & Johnson
- Gold Bond Medicated Powder
- Clubman Pinaud Talc
- Shower to Shower
- Nivea Pure Talc
- McKesson Baby Powder

Notable History of Issues with Talcum Powder
One of the most recent studies linking talcum powder usage to ovarian cancer was conducted by Dr. Daniel W. Cramer, who has been adamant about additional warnings on talc products for decades. In fact, he first found and reported a link between ovarian cancer and genital talc usage in 1982. Even in 2006, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer made it known that they considered genital talc was a possible carcinogenic. There are thousands of cases open against talcum powder manufacturers as well.
