Diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer

If a physician has confirmed that you have ovarian cancer and you’ve used talcum powder in the past, you might have heard about the connection between cancer of the ovary and talcum products. A study from 1999 published in The International Journal of Cancer states that talcum powder could cause cancer of the ovaries and the areas around the peritoneal glands if talcum particles were sprayed on the genital area or on sanitary napkins.

A 1971 study entitled Talc and Carcinoma of the Ovary and Cervix described how researchers discovered talc particles within the ovarian cancer tissues. Researchers found that ovarian tumours were linked to talcum powder as well as products made from talc that include asbestos (a known carcinogen).

Johnson & Johnson, one of the biggest manufacturers of talcum powder, was aware for a long time that the talcum powder it sold was contaminated with asbestos. Many women who had used products made of talcum powder for a long time and were later diagnosed with cancer of the ovary have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of talc for the ailments they suffered. Most juries believe that Johnson & Johnson should have informed the public about the asbestos content in their products. The multidistrict lawsuit involving the talcum powder has more than 13,000 lawsuits involving Johnson & Johnson.

Suppose a physician has diagnosed you with ovarian cancer, and you’ve had a history of applying talcum powder products to your genitals for an item for feminine hygiene. In that case, You may be able to meet the requirements for a lawsuit involving talcum powder. Contact The Justice Now at (530) 201-4340.

Diagnosis of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos particles. Mesothelioma is prevalent among those using insulation products, such as factory workers, railway and automotive workers, shipbuilders, gas-mask producers, construction employees and plumbers. Family members also can develop mesothelioma due to exposure to other people.

Inhaling a constant dose of talcum powder can put those who breathe it at a greater chance of developing mesothelioma. The asbestos fibres are microscopic and lodge within the lining of the lung and cause harm to the cells, leading to mesothelioma. If your doctor has identified you as having mesothelioma and has a historical past history of exposure to talcum powder and you believe that you will be able to claim talcum powder.

Be Ready to Answer These Health Questions When Hiring a Talcum Powder Attorney

If you choose to take legal action to recover damages resulting from baby powder or other talc-based products, be prepared to answer various personal health-related questions. Your lawyer must know the answers to these questions to determine the type of evidence you have, what’s not and whether you’re qualified to sue for damages:

How Long Have You Used Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder?

This is a crucial issue. The answer can help your lawyer determine if powder consumption is the primary cause of the diagnosis of cancer. In general, it takes continuous exposure to asbestos contained in these products to cause this kind of health problem. Be aware, however, that these instances aren’t necessarily based on using these products for personal use. For example, mothers who applied the powder to their infant children frequently inhaled it during the application process, exposing their lungs to the dangerous ingredients contained in the product.

This will also confirm that your case complies with the time limit conditions for filing an injury claim.

Was Your Talcum Powder Use for Intimate Hygiene Issues?

Understanding how you used baby powder or other products made of talc could aid your personal injury lawyer in determining how you were exposed. Applying this talc powder to intimate body parts, such as the peritoneum, is standard practice. As a matter of fact, up until the time that research revealed the dangerous asbestos-based traces that were present in the chemical formula of this popular product for hygiene, it was an integral part of a woman’s everyday female routine up to the 19th century.

When Did You Receive Your Cancer Diagnosis?

This inquiry will not only help determine the value of your financial losses but also determine whether you are eligible to bring a lawsuit. Furthermore, proving proof of your damages and the time you have spent suffering the losses will also guarantee that you will qualify for a settlement in compensation.

Have You Had Cancer Before, or Any of Your Family Members?

Since baby powder was a favourite with all household members, It’s possible that your family members, too, have been diagnosed with cancer as a result of using the talc. Also, recovering from cancer, only to have it return, helps set the foundation for proof that these products caused the body long-term harm.
