Talcum Powder is Linked to Ovarian Cancer
We can help you.
Women exposed to talcum powder are 33% more
likely to develop ovarian cancer. Moreover, another study
found that women using talcum powder during ovulation were at a 92% increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. Talcum can be found in baby powder and personal hygiene products.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum-based products or baby powder, you may be entitled to compensation.

Commonly asked questions:
Have lawsuits been filed before?
Yes, there have been several lawsuits filed against companies like Johnson & Johnson. Individual women have won major jury verdicts against Johnson & Johnson for ovarian cancer caused by talcum powder.
Some of these cases include:
What is the difference between individual suits and a class action?
- February 2016, $72 Million v. Johnson & Johnson
- May 2016, $55 Million v. Johnson & Johnson
- October 2016, $70 Million vs Johnson & Johnson
There has been a class action filed against Johnson & Johnson over the link of ovarian cancer and talcum powder. However, women who allege they have developed ovarian cancer from talc might want to consider filing their own, separate suits. The major difference is that with the individual suits, women have pursued compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages. Those who are part of the class action are suing for only recovery of the cost of the product.
