You Are Not to Blame
If you have developed ovarian cancer from using talcum powder, you may wonder what you could have done differently.
You do not have to blame yourself—for decades, companies marketed talcum powder as a safe substance, though cancerous materials were sometimes found in samples. They put profits ahead of the customer. As a result, women all over the world have developed ovarian cancer.
However, there is still action you can take. By talking to one of our nurse case managers, you can get the support you need as you seek treatment.
How We Can Help
A cancer diagnosis brings uncertainty, fear and confusion—but ovarian cancer is especially concerning. Because its symptoms are mild early on, even doctors may confuse it with less serious illnesses. As a result, many women are diagnosed after the cancer has already spread.
If you or someone you love has ovarian cancer, your main concern is recovery. However, it can be hard to balance the responsibilities you had before your diagnosis with the many tests and treatments that come after. In addition, these treatments can be hard to afford and still may not be enough to rid your body of the cancer.
These problems are very frustrating if you developed cancer from a product that was marketed to be safe. Women who used talcum powder to reduce moisture and odor may be shocked to learn that it may have caused their cancer.
The bottom line is that you never deserved talcum powder cancer.
Our legal team can help you and your family focus on healing during this trying time.

Get the Legal Aid You Deserve
Your ovarian cancer from talcum powder could have been prevented—if manufacturers and distributors of talcum powder containing products had taken the proper steps. These companies provided no signs or warnings about the risks of talc-based products, though they knew of the potential risks for decades.
By reaching out to our nurse case managers, you may be eligible to get compensation to help cover treatment costs, living expenses, loss of wages and other financial needs.
You did not deserve cancer caused by cancerous talc products—but you do deserve to hold companies responsible.
