Ovarian cancer is a serious medical condition. When diagnosed early, the survival rate is relatively high. Unfortunately, early diagnosis is the exception rather than the rule. Less than one-third of women who are diagnosed in stage 3 or later will survive. More than 20,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year, according to the American Cancer Society. The diagnosis will come as a shock to many and will disrupt the lives of the women diagnosed and their families.

The serious nature of ovarian cancer means that any potential cause of the disease should be investigated thoroughly. Several recent lawsuits have highlighted a connection between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. More than a dozen studies have found that products containing talc can increase a woman's odds of developing ovarian cancer. The earliest of these studies is more than three decades old, yet products containing talc are still not labeled properly to warn women of the danger.
