Ovarian Cancer Risks
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classifies the application of talcum powder to the genital area is possibly carcinogenic. This is particularly concerning for women who use feminine hygiene products containing talcum powder.
Decades of research has shown that use of feminine hygiene products with talcum powder puts women at increased risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, which is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related death in women.
The link between this type of cancer and talcum powder first became known in the 1970s, when researchers studied a sample of 121,000 female nurses and discovered that the nurses who used talcum powder on their genital region had a modestly increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
There was a much more alarming study in 1982 that revealed that talcum powder use during ovulation caused a 92 percent increase in the risk of ovarian cancer.
One of the researchers from that study was also the lead author in a study in March 2016 that was published in Epidemiology. The study found that there was a 33 percent higher risk of ovarian cancer for women who used talcum powder on a regular basis as a feminine hygiene product.
