An ovarian cancer diagnosis may lead you to seek alternative treatments to standard surgery and chemotherapy. These alternative treatments include, but are not limited to, acupuncture and homeopathic remedies. Discuss your options with your doctor as you start your fight against the disease.
If you used talcum powder products, and you believe your cancer diagnosis relates to the dangerous ingredient found in talc, you may be entitled to compensation to help with medical bills and other expenses.
If a company knew the product you used containing talc was harmful, yet failed to recall it and protect consumers, they might be negligent. A personal injury lawsuit might help in holding them accountable, and may help you pay for treatment, both mainstream and alternative.
If you want to supplement your traditional cancer treatment methods, or you have exhausted your traditional treatment options, consider these alternative ovarian cancer treatments.
Complementary Methods and Alternative Treatments
According to the American Cancer Society, there are two types of ovarian cancer treatment outside the mainstream: complementary and alternative methods.
Patients often use complementary methods alongside traditional methods. These methods include products or activities that can help treat the cancer or alleviate symptoms.
Patients use alternative treatments to replace traditional methods. Many patients choose this method when they become tired of treatments and medications with serious side effects.
Examples of complementary methods and alternative treatments include:
- Homeopathic remedies
- Herbal products
- Detoxification diets
Seeking an alternate form of treatment for your ovarian cancer is a personal choice. Discussing every option with your doctor first can help you better decide what alternative ovarian cancer treatments might be best for you.
More than 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s facts about gynecologic cancer. Determining if alternative ovarian cancer treatments are right for you depends upon your specific case.
Exploring Your Legal Options
Medical treatments and even alternative ones can result in a great expense and strain on your personal budget. If you suspect that your ovarian cancer is the result of using talcum powder, you may be eligible for compensation.
Some talc contains asbestos. Research continues into the possible link between talcum powder and cancer, including the development of ovarian cancer in women who used talc products. In addition to talcum powder products, talc is also commonly found in cosmetics.
No corporation or manufacturer has the right to knowingly distribute a product that can harm those who purchase it. When their negligent actions result in civil litigation, insurance companies that represent them may start making offers to settle cases quickly.
If an insurance company representative contacts you, you should not accept their settlement offer. If you do, you can lose your right to pursue civil action later if your medical condition worsens.
The insurance company, the manufacturer, and the corporation representing the product are protecting their best interests and not yours. Upon careful review of your case, a lawyer may help you decide the best course of action for you.

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
An ovarian cancer diagnosis turns your world upside down. The shock of the news can leave you wondering how you developed the cancer, and what the best treatments are for you.
No matter what type of cancer treatment plan you follow, the emotional, physical, and financial toll are overwhelming. If you believe your ovarian cancer is associated with your use of talcum powder products, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help hold the manufacturer and the company who produced the product accountable.
Time is limited for filing your civil action. In most states, statutes of limitations apply. Once the deadline passes, you could lose your opportunity to pursue justice.
An ovarian cancer diagnosis is a frightening experience. By holding the responsible parties accountable for abusing consumers’ trust, you can help prevent them from ever making and knowingly distributing dangerous products again.
