Talcum Powder Cancer Lawyers

Lawsuit Links Talcum Powder to Ovarian Cancer

The Strom Law Firm, L.L.C. is reviewing cases for individuals who developed ovarian cancer after using talcum powder or baby powder near the genitals. Since 1971, ovarian cancer has been linked to talcum powder by more than 20 studies.  In 2003, several studies found that women using talcum powder were 33 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer. The complaint alleges that Johnson & Johnson knew about the ovarian cancer risk and failed to adequately warn customers.

Talcum powder, or baby powder, is a popular choice among women who use it daily for feminine hygiene. Estimates indicate that as many as 40% of women use baby powder or talc based products on a daily basis.  Talcum powder, including Johnson and Johnson baby powder and Shower to Shower absorbent body powder, has been linked to ovarian cancer when used by women for perineal hygiene.

When talc products, such as baby powder, are applied to the genital area, talc can travel through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes to the ovaries. Talc may remain the body for years, causing inflammation.  Baby powder and talc based products can create an environment conducive to grow cancer cells. Day to day use can compound the effect, and at least one study confirmed that women who regularly use a talc based powder for feminine hygiene may increase their risk of ovarian cancer by 41%.

The Strom Law Firm, L.L.C. is investigating cases on behalf of women who used talc-based body powder including baby powder, and developed ovarian cancer.  Our talcum powder cancer lawyers offer a free, confidential consultation to discuss your concerns as well as how we can help.  Contact us today. 803.252.4800.

Ovarian cancer is a serious illness with potentially life threatening consequences.

Each year approximately 22,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Unfortunately, there is no effective way to ensure early detection of ovarian cancer.  Early detection increases the likelihood of recovery. When ovarian cancer is diagnosed early, more than 90% of women can expect to live five or longer;  When ovarian cancer is diagnosed in its advanced stage, only 50% of women can expect to live five years or longer.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer include:

  • Abdominal discomfort or pain
    • gas, indigestion, pressure, swelling, bloating, or cramps
  • Feeling  full even after a light meal
  • Nausea, diarrhea, or constipation
  • Frequent urination
  • Unexplained weight loss/gain
  • Persistent, unexplained fatigue
  • Pain during intercourse

The Talcum Power Cancer Link was not disclosed to the public.

Although not disclosed to the general public, the talcum powder cancer link has been documented for years.  Studies dating back to the 1970s indicated that women who apply talcum or baby powder to the genital area have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.  A number of studies over the past several decades have reached the same conclusion.  Neither Johnson and Johnson nor the FDA warned the public about the risk.  As of May 2014, talc based products are not required to contain a warning advising of the link between talcum powder and an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Not surprisingly, lawsuits have been filed alleging that Johnson and Johnson failed to warn women of the risks associated with talcum powder.  Johnson and Johnson claims that it is not responsible.  Judges and Juries have disagreed with Johnson and Johnson. In 2013, a verdict in favor of the plaintiff was issued in the first baby powder ovarian cancer lawsuit.

If you used a talc based body powder as part of your feminine hygiene and have developed ovarian cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.  For more facts discussing the link between baby powder and ovarian cancer, please enter your name and email here:

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+.

Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
