The Dangers Of Talcum Powder

Over the last several years, there has been a significant amount of litigation regarding talcum powder and its link to mesothelioma and other cancers. Among the settlements, industry giant Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay millions to people who have gotten sick after using talcum powder.

The biggest danger with talcum powder is that it has the potential to be contaminated with asbestos. Talc and asbestos are both naturally occurring minerals that often exist near each other in the talc mines. While there is a strong connection between asbestos-containing talc and cancer, the link between non-asbestos-containing talc and cancer is still unclear, and still poses a risk.

Talking to a skilled lawyer about your claim can help you get answers about getting compensation.

Keeping An Eye Out For Cancer

There is still a lot to be learned about what illnesses can come from using talcum powder. Currently, the two biggest threats are ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.

Often, these cancers take a while to appear and many of the symptoms are easy to dismiss or attribute to a less-serious illness. Symptoms to watch out for, include:

  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Abdominal pain or swelling
  • Bloating
  • Weight loss
