Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit

National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Advises Women What to Look For To Identify The Disease

Women that have used Johnson's Baby Powder or other baby or beauty product on their genitals should watch for the earliest ovarian cancer signals

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - Millions of women have used Johnson's Baby Powder over the past fifty or so years, and many have developed ovarian cancer, allegedly from so doing. The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) has published statistics on ovarian cancer that are frightening, especially to the women who used talc-based baby powder on the genitals for feminine hygiene. The NOCC claims that one in every seventy-eight women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime. If you have come into regular contact with talc by using Johnson's Baby Powder regularly and for many years, you should watch for "bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, trouble eating or feeling full quickly, feeling the need to urinate urgently or often. Other signs of early-stage ovarian cancer are fatigue, upset stomach or heartburn, back pain, pain during sex, constipation or menstrual changes," according to the NOCC.

Thousands of women die from ovarian cancer every year. Moffitt.org has told of statistics that indicate that ovarian cancer is the leading type of cancer of the female reproductive system. Moffit writes, "The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates more than 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than 14,000 women will die in the United States this year." Studies show that particles of talc have been found in the excised cancerous tumors of women with ovarian cancer indicating talc may have played a role in causing cancer. Talcum powder cancer lawsuit lawyers do offer a free no obligation consultation to find out if you qualify to submit a talcum lawsuit claim.

Detecting ovarian cancer at its earliest stages is difficult but gives the cancer patient the greatest odds of being able to successfully treat the disease. Parade.com writes that patients that detect ovarian cancer at the earliest stage have a five-year survival rate of over 90%. Ovarian cancer symptoms mask themselves as the same as a woman's monthly menstruation cramps and pain making differentiation difficult. Ovarian cancer has the reputation of being a silent killer. One of the most common symptoms of having an ovarian cancer tumor is losing weight yet adding inches to the waistline. Health experts agree that the best way to avoid coming into contact with talc is to stop using talcum powder on the genital region and to purchase talc-free sanitary napkins and other feminine hygiene products.

Researchers think that ovarian cancer can be caused by genetic factors and point to one's family history as being an important indicator. Others think that using Johnson's Baby Powder nearly every day for many years could have caused their cancer. Juries around the nation agree with the later and have awarded billions of dollars in punitive damages to women with ovarian cancer who have blamed their disease on using Johnson's Baby Powder. Johnson & Johnson have recently settled 1000 of the more than 25,000 ovarian cancer lawsuits against them, out of court for 100 million dollars. Women with ovarian cancer, and the loved ones of those who have died from the disease, are hiring Johnson's Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawyers and filing lawsuits.
