Link Between Your Diagnosis and Talcum Powder
If you are wondering if you can file a talcum powder lawsuit after your doctor diagnosed you with either ovarian cancer or mesothelioma, you will need to establish that there was either regular use, or exposure to, talcum powder or talc-containing products to link your diagnosis with talcum powder usage.
If you curious about filing a talcum powder lawsuit based on your ovarian cancer diagnosis, consider the following questions and see if they apply in your case:
- Were you diagnosed with any type of ovarian cancer?
- Were you a user of a feminine hygiene product containing talcum powder for years?
- Have you ever used a product such as Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower to Shower powder, or a similar product that contained talcum powder?
- Did the biopsy results of your ovarian tumor show talc fibers?
- Do you have any family history of the BRCA-1 gene or ovarian cancer?
If your doctor gave you a diagnosis of mesothelioma, and you do not work in an industry that had known asbestos-containing elements or particles, but you did use talcum powder, you may be able to file a talcum powder lawsuit. In 2019, scientific research explored the development of mesothelioma with the use of cosmetic talc. After sampling mesothelioma tissue, all of the patients’ samples contained talc particles. Asbestos-contaminated talcum powder exposure was the only way these patients would have asbestos in their system. Consider the following questions and see if they apply in your mesothelioma case. The answers may help you determine whether to pursue a lawsuit against a talcum powder manufacturer.
- Were you diagnosed with mesothelioma?
- Were you ever exposed to talcum powder where you would be able to inhale it for years, such as a barbershop or other industry that uses talc-containing products?
- Did the biopsy results of your mesothelioma show talc fibers?
