Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits
All of the talcum powder lawsuits have one thing in common. They claim that regular repeated and long term use of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower products to the genital area can increase a woman’s risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. All the lawsuits claim that talc particles can make their way into the vagina and migrate to the ovaries. The accumulation of talc particles and the constant irritation and inflammation can promote the growth of cancer cells. A number of studies published since the 1970s have suggested a link. Johnson & Johnson has failed to take any steps to warn women of this possible risk and link between Talc products and ovarian cancer.
More than 1,200 talcum powder lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson nationwide. In April, a St. Louis jury awarded $55 million to an ovarian cancer victim who used Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based powders for nearly 40 years for feminine hygiene .
