Ovarian Cancer & Talcum Powder

Fighting for the Rights of Patients Nationwide

Talcum powder has been safely used by consumers for decades—while it was once made with asbestos (a major cancer-causing agent), it has not been made with asbestos for over 40 years. However, studies have continually linked talcum powder in intimate feminine hygiene to ovarian cancer since the 1970s. Part of the reason for the link is rooted in biopsies of ovarian tumors, which contained particles of talc in an unusually high rate of occurrence.

At BPB, we believe people who suffer from medical conditions as a result of dangerous products have a right to know how they became ill—and hold manufacturers accountable for their actions. With 150+ years' collective experience, we have the skill to help you present your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.

If you need help holding large manufacturers accountable for your ovarian cancer, call (888) 367-7160 for a free case consultation.

How Talc May Cause Ovarian Tumors

Studies as recent as 2013 have found talcum powder, when applied to the genitals, increased the chances for ovarian cancer by 20-30%. Scientists hypothesize the minerals of magnesium and silicon travel up the uterus and fallopian tubes to the ovaries, where their presence creates abnormal cell growth. Johnson & Johnson, a major talcum powder provider, calls these findings inconclusive. However, multiple studies have strengthened the link between cancer and talcum powder.

We Will Fight For You

The law firm of BPB understands that major manufacturers see medical injuries as statistics, measuring them in rates of occurrence in the hundreds or thousands. However, our lawyers see the truth—that medical conditions caused by unsafe products are not just statistics, but human lives. Every time we take a case, we recognize that our clients’ lives and livelihood are on the line, and we fight relentlessly to make sure every case is as strong as possible.
