Talcum Powder Lawyer (Ovarian Cancer)
Global powerhouse Johnson & Johnson has sold talcum-based powder since the 1890s. Unfortunately, its products contained a small amount of asbestos, which has been linked to ovarian cancer. According to Reuters, the company has been aware of its products’ carcinogenic potential since at least the early 1970s. If you or a loved one have suffered from ovarian cancer and you suspect Johnson & Johnson products were a contributing factor then a talcum powder lawyer may be able to help you win compensation.

Johnson & Johnson Stopped Selling Talcum Powder in 2020
With the enormous popularity of its Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products, Johnson & Johnson knowingly exposed millions of people to a potentially dangerous product. While the company halted the sales of its talcum powder products in May 2020, decades of harm have already been done.
One of the most difficult aspects of ovarian cancer is that it can be difficult to detect. Many people do not receive a diagnosis until the cancer has reached late stages that can be challenging and expensive to treat. An experienced talcum powder lawyer can help you get compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, ongoing treatment, and more.
What Are the Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer?
Ovarian cancer can be detected with regular checkups and if it’s being looked for specifically. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of the disease’s symptoms. Some of the things to look out for include:
- Loss of appetite
- Sudden weight loss
- Atypical vaginal bleeding and/or discharge
- Pain around the pelvic region
- Sudden change in bowel movements and urination
- Lower back pain
- Lumps or swelling in the abdominal area
If you’ve experienced any of the symptoms listed above then it’s vital that you see a doctor to get tested for ovarian cancer. If you’ve used Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products as part of your hygiene regimen then it’s important to estimate which products you used and how often you used them.
