If you regularly used talcum powder for personal hygiene and developed ovarian cancer, you may be wondering if your cancer was caused by the use of this product and whether you should pursue a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson. Understanding some of the criteria used to determine whether to pursue a claim can help you decide whether to go forward. To evaluate these cases, lawyers are asking whether the woman meets the following criteria:
- Has been diagnosed with an ovarian-type cancer
- Used talcum powder on a regular basis for four years or more as a feminine hygiene product
- Used Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower to Shower
- Biopsy results show evidence of talcum powder
No family history of ovarian cancer or a genetic disorder pre-disposing her to ovarian cancer, such as the BRCA-1 gene

What happens if some of these factors apply to you, but others do not? For example, you may have used baby powder religiously, but for slightly less than four years.
The bottom line is that you do not want to make the decision whether to pursue a claim on your own. Even if you do not meet all of the criteria, you may have a claim for compensation. You need to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can investigate your claim, review your medical records, and make a determination as to whether you have sufficient evidence to pursue a lawsuit.
