What is Nivea Pure Talc?

Nivea Pure Fine Talcum Powder is a lightly fragranced, fine powder that is used for a variety of cosmetic purposes to absorb moisture and cut down on friction.

What’s the Problem?

Dozens of studies conducted over the past 40 years have found that side effects of talcum powder may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when used by women for feminine hygiene purposes.

How Can Talcum Powder Cause Ovarian Cancer?

The particles that make up talcum powder are extremely fine and can travel through a woman’s reproductive organs when applied on a regular basis. In order for ovarian cancer to occur, the talc particles must have gotten into the vagina, traveled through the fallopian tubes and become embedded in the ovaries.

What are the Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer?

In its early stages, ovarian cancer often causes faint symptoms that can be mistaken for less serious illnesses. Signs and symptoms may include:

  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Changes in bladder and bowel movements
  • Fatigue

Ovarian cancer may take several opinions before being correctly diagnosed.

How Do I Know if my Ovarian Cancer was Caused by Talcum Powder?

The tissue samples and pathology reports that were used to diagnose your ovarian cancer can be used to determine whether your ovarian tissues contain talc fibers. By reviewing your medical records and sending your pathology reports to a talcum powder ovarian cancer expert, our lawyers can determine whether talc may have caused your ovarian cancer.

Who is Eligible to File a Claim?

Women or family members of women who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder products for perineal hygiene may be eligible to receive compensation for their injuries through the filing of a lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

Most cases involving pharmaceuticals allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of talcum powder, our attorneys suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that manufacturers failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of ovarian cancer.

How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?

By filing a lawsuit against the maker of Nivea Talcum Powder, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your ovarian cancer, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the product’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective product into the marketplace, and to discourage other companies from engaging in similar conduct.
