Talcum Powder Poses Serious Risk

Talcum powder is a common household product. You’ve probably used it plenty of times in your life. Even if you don’t use talc in its powder form, you have likely used one of the many deodorants and medical powders that also contain this ingredient. Talc can help prevent skin rash and keep you dry.

Unfortunately, however, it is becoming clear that talc can also cause something else. When talcum powder is near the genitals, it can sometimes enter into the body, causing dangerous inflammation. This may even cause the formation of malignant tumors.

If you developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder or products with talc, you may be entitled to compensation from the company that developed the product.

Several recent lawsuits filed against manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson alleges that those companies were aware of the possibly harmful side effects of talcum powder and continued to sell its products anyway. A jury in Los Angeles recently awarded $417 million in damages to a victim of ovarian cancer who had used talcum powder.

Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances.
