Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer
Johnson & Johnson (J&J) has been putting talcum powder in its Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products for decades, even though studies dating back to 1971 have evidenced a potential link between talc and ovarian cancer.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using Baby Powder or Shower to Shower for genital dusting, contact your team at GoldenbergLaw. Our talcum powder lawyers can make sure that you are being represented fairly and accurately. Leave the sleepless nights to us.
Case Quick Facts
Depending on usage, women who genitally dust with talcum powder may be almost three times as likely to develop ovarian cancer due to long-term irritation of the ovaries and the actual presence of talcum fibers within ovarian tissue.
Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease for both the patient and her loved ones. Diagnosis often results in chemotherapy, radiation, surgical intervention, and death.
Johnson & Johnson, one of the world’s largest companies, manufactures and distributes Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. Despite the trust placed in the company by women all across America, J&J has never warned of the increased risk of ovarian cancer from genital dusting of talc even though it was aware of the potential link for more than three decades.
Litigation Status – Active
Thousands of women from across the country have filed lawsuits alleging their ovarian cancer was caused by use of J&J’s talcum powder products. Litigation is ongoing in St. Louis, Missouri, where four separate trials have resulted in three jury verdicts awarding over $200 million. A Multidistrict Litigation has also been formed in the District of New Jersey and assigned to The Honorable Judge Freda L. Wolfson.

Cancer Prevention Research
A study in 2013 found that women have a 20-30% increase in developing ovarian cancer when using talcum powder for the purpose of genital dusting.
The Association Between Talc Use and Ovarian Cancer
Dr. Cramer recently published another study showing an overall association between talc use and epithelial ovarian cancer—an association that is stronger in African Americans.
Studies Link Talc to Ovarian Cancer
Since Dr. Cramer’s 1982 study, over 20 other studies have been published connecting the genital use of talc to ovarian cancer.
In 2008, Harvard epidemiologist Dr. Margaret Gates reaffirmed that weekly use of talcum powder for perineal use increases the risk for ovarian cancer by 33%, and daily use by 41%.
