Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Alert- Reaching Out to America’s Largest Cities

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline has increased marketing to the largest cities  in the U.S ( NYC,  Los Angeles, CA;  Chicago, IL ; Houston, TX; Philadelphia, PA ; Phoenix,  AZ; San Antonio, TX; San Diego, CA; Dallas, TX;  and San Jose, CA to alert women of  the connection between Talcum Powder products, like Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, and ovarian cancer. Women used these products for years around genital areas and on sanitary napkins without knowing that the talc  particles can travel to the ovaries. They can sit there for years causing irritation and inflammation and result in the fatal ovarian cancer diagnosis.

In a recent Talcum Powder lawsuit a jury decided that  Talcum Powder did cause ovarian cancer and awarded $72 million. Manufacturers knew for years and never warned women. Instead they promoted their products for use to stay dry.

The link between ovarian cancer and Talcum Powder ” dusting ”  has been argued  for years. In an article published in the 1971 issue of the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, it was noted that  research found talcum powder particles inside  ovarian cancer victims. In 2013 Cancer Prevention Research reported that women who used talcum powder faced a 2o%-30% increased risk of ovarian cancer.  Again, this study showed that talc particles can remain embedded in ovaries for up to eight years.

Talcum powder cancer  is  difficult to  of diagnose   in early stages because it can take so many years for the cancer to develop. Studies have shown a clear connection between talcum powder and and a heightened risk of ovarian cancer.

Tje Manufacturers offer not warning for women. Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline wants women to know that using Talc based products on the genital area can potentially lead to ovarian cancer. We fell you should be warned.

New Drug For Ovarian Cancer

The Talcum Powder Lawsuit Helpline is more then just Talcum Powder or Baby Powder lawyers. We keep you updated on the latest ovarian cancer news and treatments. We found this online and hope it helps.

New Drugs for Advanced Ovarian Cancer

In 2014, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first of a new class of drugs, called PARP inhibitors, to treat advanced ovarian cancer (cancer that has spread beyond the ovaries and pelvic area).

The new drug, called Lynparza (olaparib), is taken as a pill.

Lynparza is recommended for women with both advanced ovarian cancer and an inherited BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation who have undergone three or more previous rounds of chemo.

In a small clinical trial, about one-third of the women who got the new drug had their tumors shrink or disappear for an average of about eight months.

Talc particles from Talcum powder can travel to the ovaries and cause cancer cells. Ovarian cancer is often fatal. The manufacturers knew about the potential risks and never published a warning or added a warning label. Why? Because Talcum powder and Baby Powder is a multi million dollar industry and was marketed for adult women to use for personal hygiene to keep private areas dry.
