Studies have shown that women who regularly used talc-containing products for feminine hygiene have their cancer risk increased by up to 40 percent. In fact, talc is considered a possible carcinogen by both the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute.

Ovarian cancer can be difficult to detect early and is often found after it has already has a chance to worsen. Because of this, ovarian cancer could be a fatal diagnosis.

    Recently, juries in two separate talcum powder lawsuits have ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay a combined $127 million in compensatory and punitive damages. The company still faces approximately 1,200 other claims.
