Capable Wisconsin Lawyers For Victims Of Talcum Powder Cancer
If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after years of using talcum powder, you are not alone. A growing body of research suggests a link between women’s regular use of talcum powder on the genitals to prevent chafing and a significantly increased risk of ovarian cancer. One recent study suggests that talcum powder can increase your chances of ovarian cancer by 33%. In addition, talcum powder makers used to include asbestos, which has long been linked to the lung cancer known as mesothelioma.
Companies like Johnson & Johnson that have manufactured and sold talcum powder for years are under scrutiny for their role in allowing this dangerous product to reach the public for decades without proper warning.
If you believe you developed cancer due to exposure to talcum powder, contact Alpert & Fellows, a local Wisconsin law firm with offices in Manitowoc, Green Bay and Sheboygan.

More Information On Ovarian Cancer And Mesothelioma
Symptoms associated with ovarian cancer include:
- Pain or pressure in the lower abdomen
- Nausea, vomiting or gas
- Trouble eating
- Changes to your menstruation
- Unexplained changes to your weight
Mesothelioma is a deadly lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos particles. It can take years after you were exposed to asbestos for mesothelioma to emerge. While Johnson & Johnson and other companies have not used asbestos in their talc products for years, there still could be people in danger of getting sick from long-ago use.
