Women who face ovarian cancer after using talcum powder products for personal hygiene need to know details of what is ovarian cancer. Their health comes first, and treatments should ensue. But they also can explore a talcum powder ovarian cancer lawsuit to get financial compensation for their losses.

Women Diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is rare, accounting for just 3 per cent of all cancers affecting women. However, ovarian cancer is particularly aggressive and dangerous, augmented by the fact that it features few symptoms in its early stages and may not be detected until it has spread.

According to a report from the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, over 21,000 American women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, and over 14,000 women die from ovarian cancer yearly.

The five-year survival rate for ovarian cancer is under 50 per cent, the report indicates.

The survival rate is low in part because ovarian cancer usually is not diagnosed until it has spread into other areas of the body beyond the ovaries. Since ovarian cancer in its early stages lacks pronounced symptoms, and since there isn’t an effective screening test for it, an estimated 66 per cent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are suffering the disease in its late stages, when it is more difficult to treat.

Ovarian Cancer Treatments

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), treatments of ovarian cancer can include chemotherapy as well as a variety of types of surgeries.

Treatments also can include radiation therapy, targeted therapy and hormone therapy.

In many cases, more than one of these treatments may be employed. A woman’s physician can advise her of which treatments may be best for her.

In addition, some complementary or alternative methods can be found to treat ovarian cancer or to relieve its symptoms. Among such methods are special diets, acupuncture, massage and taking herbs or vitamins.

The ACS says complementary methods are used along with a woman’s regular medical care, while alternative methods are used instead of medical treatment. The ACS does not necessarily recommend either course, although it notes that some methods may relieve ovarian cancer symptoms and help patients to feel better.

However, the ACS also notes that some of these other methods may not work at all and even could be risky.

An ideal situation involves detecting ovarian cancer in an early stage. According to the Mayo Clinic, early-stage ovarian cancer that is limited strictly to an ovary is “more likely to be treated successfully.”

Ovarian Cancer Research

Research into the causes of and treatments for ovarian cancer continues. However, a report by NBC News on March 2, 2016 quoted cancer experts who held that ovarian cancer “is being shortchanged in terms of medical attention and understanding, even though it’s one of the deadliest cancers there is.”

This could contribute to the fact that ovarian cancer is the fifth-leading cause of cancer deaths among American women, despite accounting for just 1 of every 33 female cancers.

Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits

As found in ovarian cancer lawsuits in victims’ favor, women who used Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder or Shower to Shower products on their genitals to reduce chafing, moisture and odors can suffer ovarian cancer as a result.

Such women have a legal right to claim economic recovery for their injury losses, including payments for their hospital and medical care costs, lost present and future salary, and pain and suffering.

I went to the office and everyone was so considerate and professional , so my first impression was good, I felt like I was in good hands. Then I received a call from Vanessa Garcia, she was on top of EVERYTHING! I never had to call her, she always called me. She even called to see how I was doing , and if I needed help with anything. That is why I have absolutely no worries.read more

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.read more

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds. Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began. Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior. I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates. Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case. Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case. One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process. In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.read more

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.read more
