What is Nivea Talc?

Nivea Pure Fine Talc is a body powder with a mild fragrance that is advertised to both men and women. Talcum powder is a super-soft mineral that absorbs moisture, cuts down on chafing, and has many other purposes. It is is also used on babies to prevent diaper rash.

How Are Women Exposed?

Talcum powder has been advertised to adult women since the 1950s. It is promoted as a feminine hygiene product to absorb moisture, usually every day after bathing. Historically, talcum powder was also used on surgical gloves, menstrual products, condoms, and more.

Does Talc Get in the Ovaries?

Yes. The first study to prove that talcum powder can accumulate in the ovaries was in the 1970s, when doctors examined tissue samples from several women who died of ovarian cancer and found tiny particles of talc embedded in the tissue.

How Do I Know if Talc Caused My Cancer?

There are currently over 2,000 lawsuits involving women with ovarian cancer who used talcum powder products throughout their lifetime. Lawyers have helped many of these women get medical records as evidence in their lawsuits. Pathology reports often find talc in ovarian tissues that were removed as biopsies or surgical treatment.

What is the Risk?

The risk of ovarian cancer for women in general is about 1.4%, according to the American Cancer Society. The use of talcum powder on the genital area for many years is estimated to increase this risk by about 33%, or about a 1.8% risk of developing cancer overall.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer rarely causes symptoms in its early stages. This is why most women are not diagnosed until the cancer has metastasized (spread to other organs) and has become much harder to treat. In the early stages, ovarian cancer may cause the following symptoms:

  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fatigue
  • Unexplained weight-loss
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Abdominal pressure or pain
  • And more
