Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit

Know The Early Warning Signs of Ovarian Cancer And Get Treated Immediately

Hundreds of thousands of women could have talc-induced ovarian cancer without knowing until it becomes untreatable

Monday, June 22, 2020 - The talcum powder cancer scare now seems to be deadlier than the wildest estimates and prompted individuals in droves to stop using Johnson's Baby Powder and Johnson & Johnson to stop selling the product throughout North America.

Experts think that now that a link has been established between talc, the main ingredient in Johnson's Baby Powder and also hundreds of other popular cosmetic products like eye shadow, blush, and brush-on makeup, and cancer, hundreds of thousands or more middle-aged women could be walking around with cancer and not know it. Undiagnosed ovarian cancer may represent a ticking time bomb of future talc-induced cancer fatalities. Ovarian cancer and mesothelioma, two signature diseases of asbestos-laced talcum powder, have a latency period of between ten and twenty years from the time of initial exposure before the symptoms of cancer become evident. Talcum powder and cosmetics are both daily use products and inhaling or ingesting carcinogenic talc or talc-contaminated asbestos can build up day by day over decades. Millions of women could be walking around today with talc cancer that will present itself in the years and decades to come. According to Healthline.com, "About 21,000 U.S. people get diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, and about 14,000 die from it. An individual's lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer is about 1 in 78. Their risk of dying from ovarian cancer is about 1 in 108."

Warning signs of ovarian cancer are persistent indigestion or feeling sick, pain during sex, a change in your bowel habits, back pain, vaginal bleeding (particularly bleeding after the menopause), feeling tired all the time and unintentional weight loss." according to NHS the UK's equivalent to the US FDA. Talcum powder cancer lawyer are national attorneys with a winning track record litigating against big pharmaceutical corporations and offer a free no obligation consultation before filing a lawsuit claim.

According to Starts at Sixty.com, an online publication dealing with health issues that affect people over 60 years old, the current jury awards that have been leveled against Johnson & Johnson and other cosmetic companies could be only the tip of the iceberg indicating what is to come in the near future. SAS writes that one British solicitor expects the worse is yet to come. "A lawyer is warning that talcum powder could be linked to "thousands" of cases of life-threatening cancer. British solicitor Philip Gower believes there is a ticking time bomb of cancer among middle-aged women who may not yet be aware of their potentially fatal diagnosis, caused by excessive use of talcum powder sold on the high street." Starts at Sixty quotes Mr. Gower as raising concerns that have not as of yet been expressed in public. "We believe many women were unaware that using talcum powder could have been bad for them and some of them are now seriously ill. Others have unfortunately died and their families only found out about the potential link afterward," Mr. Glover lamented." Over 20,000 men and women have filed lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson claiming that using Johnson's Baby Powder regularly for a lifetime caused their ovarian cancer of mesothelioma. After a formal Daubert hearing in July 2019, cases are scheduled to restart in the second half of 2020.
