Ovarian Cancer Claim Attorneys Serving Clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware
What is ovarian cancer?
Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries, which are located on both sides of the uterus. The ovaries produce the female hormones, as well release eggs during a woman's reproductive years.
Talcum powder and ovarian cancer
A study published by the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in March, 1971, found that 75% of the ovarian tumor tissues studied contained particles of talc. Since that time, numerous studies have suggested that minute talc particles can migrate from the vaginal area to the ovaries where they became embedded deep within the tissue, and can trigger ovarian cancer.
Compensation for ovarian cancer talcum powder lawsuits
There have been some 1,200 lawsuits filed on behalf of women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder products for feminine hygiene. Juries awarded victims $72,000,000 and $55,000,000 in two separate landmark cases against talcum powder manufacturers. Evidence has shown that the manufacturers of talcum powder have known about the health risks of using their products for decades. Despite this knowledge, consumers were not warned of the potential danger of talcum use in the vaginal area.
