Medical research is still determining the true impact of talcum powder and the increase of a woman’s risk for Ovarian cancer.
For decades, women have been using talc-containing products on their bodies, not knowing the dangers to their reproductive systems and risk for developing Ovarian cancer.
Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer in Medical Studies
As far back as 1971, a study published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that 75% of all Ovarian cancer tissue researchers examined contained talc particles.
More recent studies examining the risk of Ovarian cancer based on long-term use of talcum powder indicate an increased risk of cancer in the vaginal area compared with women who did not use talcum powder.

Ovarian Cancer is a deadly disease that claims the lives of more than 14,000 women each year in the U. S.
The 3 Types of Ovarian Cancer Include:
Germ Cell Tumors - Tumors begin in the cells that are egg producing. Rare Ovarian cancer is more common among young women.
Epithelial Tumors - Tumors begin in the thin layer of tissue covering the outside of the ovaries. This Ovarian cancer accounts for about 90% of all Ovarian cancers.
Stromal Tumors - Tumors begin in hormone-producing cells within the ovarian tissue and cells. This Ovarian cancer is often diagnosed earlier and accounts for about 7% of Ovarian cancers.
Risk Factors for Ovarian Cancer Can Include:
Using talcum powder on the female genital area creates a pathway where talc particles travel through the reproductive system and attach to the ovaries. If tiny talc particles embed in the reproductive tissue, it can cause inflammation in the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Over time, the damage caused by talcum powder can lead to DNA damage of ovarian tissue and cells and cause cancer cells to multiply.
Common Symptoms Associated with Ovarian Cancer Include:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have long-term exposure to using talc products, you should see a doctor and be checked for ovarian cancer and get proper treatment immediately.
The main treatment for Ovarian cancer patients is surgery.
Surgery can involve the removal of one or both ovaries. Depending on how far cancer has spread, the fallopian tubes, uterus, and other cancer tissues could be removed. The goal in surgery is to remove as much of the cancerous tissue as possible. Early discovery of Ovarian cancer makes surgery less invasive.
Following surgery, most women receive chemotherapy treatments. This helps kill any cancerous cells that remain. In advanced cases, chemotherapy can be prescribed both before and after surgery.
Since 1999, the American Cancer Society has maintained that using talc-containing products can lead to developing cancer and serious illness. If you developed cancer after using a talcum powder product, you might have the right to seek compensation.
