Posted By Golombg & Honik || 31-Jan-2014

The national consumer class action attorneys at Golomb & Honik are actively investigating claims on behalf of women who may have developed ovarian cancer following the regular use of talcum-based Johnson & Johnson powder products for feminine hygiene.

If you or someone you love was diagnosed with ovarian cancer that may be associated with the use of a Johnson & Johnson powder, please call our lawyers at 855-889-5389 for your free case assessment. Our law firm is based in Philadelphia, but our experienced attorneys are dedicated to helping victims of dangerous consumer products nationwide.

In one recent lawsuit related to ovarian cancer and Johnson & Johnson talcum powder, a jury ruled that talcum contained in body powders led to the onset of ovarian cancer in a woman who used Johnson & Johnson powders for personal hygiene purposes for approximately 30 years. The jury also found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn consumers about a potential link between talc-based powder and an increased risk for ovarian cancer.

Medical research into an association between talcum powder and ovarian cancer is limited, but growing. An analysis of data published last year indicates that women who routinely use a talcum powder for feminine hygiene may face a 41 percent greater risk of developing ovarian cancer.

About 20,000 women are thought to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. A medical expert who testified in the Johnson & Johnson talcum powder case mentioned above told jurors talc may be a contributing factor in about 10,000 instances of ovarian cancer annually.
