Ovarian Cancer Caused by Talc in Powders, Cosmetics or Other Products? You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Talcum powder is a common ingredient in a wide range of foods, personal care products and other household items. Yet this common product may not be as safe as it seems. Over the past 40 years, several studies have linked talcum powder use to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Talcum powder is made from a mineral called talc. In powder form, it appears in a wide variety of personal care products, including baby powder, body powders and makeup. Beginning in the 1960s, some scientific studies suggested a link between the use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer. If you had ovarian cancer, medical records, tissue samples and pathology reports that doctors used to track the illness and treat it could also provide valuable clues to establish the cause of the disease. In many cases, medical records can be examined to determine whether traces of talc were found in ovarian tissue, the fallopian tubes or in the pelvic lymph nodes.
