Talcum powder, found in baby powder, facial powders, and dry shampoos, is a common household product. After being used for generations without concern, studies that began as early as the 1970s have now revealed that there could be a substantial link between use of talcum powder and the development of ovarian cancer in women.

If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and used Talcum Powder regularly, then you should talk to one of our attorneys to explore whether or not you might have a legal claim.

Talcum powder is made of talc, a soft mineral, which is extremely efficient at absorbing moisture. It is often used to prevent chafing and skin irritation. Studies have been conducted recently that show a link between the use of talcum powder around the genitals and an increased risk of ovarian cancer. In fact, a 2013 study by Brigham and Women’s Hospital analyzed data from nearly 2,000 cases and discovered that there was a 20% to 30% increased risk of ovarian cancer in women who used talcum powder.
