Talc-Based Products Known to Cause Mesothelioma & Ovarian Cancer

Talc is a soft, magnesium-based mineral used by Johnson & Johnson in several products including Baby Powder and Shower to Shower. It has been known to cause mesothelioma and ovarian cancer among people who use talc-based products regularly for prolonged periods of time. Our firm is already aggressively pursuing talcum powder lawsuits on behalf of ovarian cancer victims.

Studies have found that the presence of asbestos in talc may lead to the development of mesothelioma in people who inhale talcum powder. Mesothelioma is a progressive, incurable, and deadly form of cancer that affects the lungs, abdomen, or heart.

Symptoms of mesothelioma may include any of the following:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Ascites (Accumulation of fluid in the abdomen)
  • Weight loss
  • Blood clots in veins
  • Pleural effusion (Fluid buildup in the lining of the lungs), and more

Damages Associated With Talc Products

While there is currently no cure for mesothelioma, treatments typically include chemotherapy and surgery, which are painful, expensive, and may create residual health problems and personal suffering.

Talc can be spread to people in various ways. Infants will inhale it when their parents use it. People in their 20’s being diagnosed with mesothelioma and asbestos exposure can be linked to baby powder use early in life or repeated use throughout childhood and adulthood.

Multiple Multi-Million-Dollar Verdicts Awarded in Favor of Plaintiffs Injured by Johnson & Johnson Products

Five recent trials resulted in massive monetary awards for ovarian cancer victims, notably $417 million, $110 million, $72 million, $70 million, and $55 million. These plaintiffs used J&J's talc-based Baby Powder and Shower to Shower for several decades and successfully demonstrated that the talcum powder product manufacturer failed to safely and completely extract asbestos from its products.
