Talcum Powder Tied to Cancer in Women

Talcum powder is a mineral composed of magnesium, silicon and oxygen. This powder breaks down friction, preventing dry skin and rashes while also absorbing moisture. There is no definitive evidence, however based on research and speculation, there is a possible tie between talcum powder triggering women to form cancers such as; ovarian, cervical, uterine and endometrial.

Generally, talcum powder is used for:
• Many feminine hygiene care products:
o Cosmetic products
o Adult body
o Baby products
o Facial products

According to American Cancer Society: Most concerns about a possible link between talcum powder and cancer have been focused on:
• Whether women who apply talcum powder regularly in the genital area have an increased risk of cancer.

According to the Washington Post
• 22,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with ovarian Cancer this year and 14,000 will die.

If you or a loved one used talcum powder for 4 or more years to the genitalia and were diagnosed with ovarian, cervical, uterine or endometrial cancer, you may be entitled to compensation. Call our Mass Tort attorneys at (888) 351-1038 or contact us online
