Wilmington Talcum Powder and Ovarian Cancer Attorneys

Was Your Ovarian Cancer Caused by Talcum Powder?

"Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away." That’s the catchy ad slogan that’s been used to sell Johnson & Johnson’s feminine hygiene product, Shower To Shower, since the 70s. But more and more studies are now linking use of this product and others containing talcum powder to ovarian cancer when used on a woman’s genital area. If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and were a regular user of a feminine hygiene product containing talcum powder, you may be entitled to significant compensation. To get the compensation you deserve, you’ll need to secure the representation of an astute product liability attorney. The legal team at Wilmington’s Rhine Law Firm, P.C. has been successfully representing North Carolina residents for over 25 years. Let them put their experience to work on your claim by calling (866) 772-9960. Your initial consultation will be free.

Studies Suggest Link Between Talc and Cancer

While past studies have suggested that women who use feminine hygiene products containing talcum powder are at a 30 percent higher risk for contracting ovarian cancer, a more recent 2015 study published in the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer claimed the risk to be 30 to 60 percent higher. The suspicion that talcum powder causes ovarian cancer can be traced as far back as the early 70s, when a study published in The Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the British Commonwealth discovered that 75 percent of ovarian tumor tissue contained talc particles. In spite of all this evidence, the maker of both Shower to Shower and Baby Powder, Johnson & Johnson, refuses to acknowledge the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. However, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), part of the World Health Organization (WHO), lists genital use of talcum powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”

The Dangers of Talcum Powder

Talcum Powder Lawsuits

If you’ve been watching the news, you’ve probably heard about the Modesto, California woman who was just awarded $70 million by a jury who agreed that Johnson & Johnson was liable for her ovarian cancer. And she’s not alone, over 1,200 defective medical product lawsuits have been filed over the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, with settlements as high as $127 million. If you are diagnosed with and treated for ovarian cancer, you stand to accumulate some enormous medical bills and endure a great deal of pain and suffering. If your cancer could have been avoided by something as simple as a warning label on a product, you deserve to be compensated. But suing a giant corporation like Johnson & Johnson is no easy task. They employ armies of lawyers to mitigate their liability and reduce or deny any damages they might be asked to pay. To have a solid chance in winning your claim, you’re going to need the guidance of an experienced Wilmington personal injury attorney. Rhine Law Firm, P.C. considers it their mission to fight large corporations on behalf individuals who have suffered due to their negligence.
