Talcum Powder Litigation Lawyers in San Antonio

Ovarian Cancer Linked to Talcum Powder

Talcum powder is a mineral that has been used in baby powder, cosmetics, and other consumer products for decades, including products marketed as "feminine hygiene" products. In recent years, the use of talcum powder has been linked to an increase in ovarian cancer among women.

If you or a loved one has developed ovarian cancer after using a talc-based product, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, our San Antonio talcum powder litigation lawyers have been holding companies accountable for defective products since 1990.

Talcum Powder & Increased Cancer Risk

Talcum powder can be found in a number of different products, including:

  • Vaginal deodorants
  • Tampons
  • Sanitary napkins
  • Condoms
  • Diaphragms

Problems can arise because talc does not naturally break down in the body. This can lead to irritation, which can lead to an increased risk of ovarian cancer. In fact, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified talcum body powder as "possibly carcinogenic to humans." Despite all of the evidence, major manufacturers of talcum-based body powder, such as Johnson & Johnson, continue to claim that their products are safe for all labeled uses. When a corporation's product is the likely culprit behind a serious medical diagnosis, it is important to hold them accountable.
