In early 2016, there was a landmark win of the talcum powder lawsuit that became the national news. Although the research linking talcum powder with ovarian cancer has been going on since 1970s, the Johnson’s Baby Powder event made many more women across the nation aware about the risk of ovarian cancer.
There is more than one form of ovarian cancer. Women with the habit of perineal dusting reportedly have been linked with epithelial ovarian cancer. It is basically the most common form of ovarian cancer. Talc particles form a mass in the ovaries leading to an inflammatory reaction in the region.

Given the debilitating nature of ovarian cancer along with the various revolting side effects of cancer treatment, there are arguments which show how the negligence of Johnson & Johnson, the maker of this talcum powder failed to warn its customers about the adverse risks of using this powder on their genital area.
If you want to apply for this lawsuit, any of the following factors should be there:
- regularly used talcum powder as a hygiene product

- biopsy reports prove traces of talcum powder
- no earlier history of ovarian cancer in the patient
