Talc Powder Cancer Attorney: Tim Misny

Millions of men and women have used talcum powder for personal hygiene for years.  Cancer usually results after long-term exposure to talc – even a small amount of asbestos found in talc powder can result in a deadly diagnosis of ovarian cancer or other cancers.

According to drugwatch.com:

In the early 70s, a possible link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer was first recognized.  Researchers found particles of talc in ovarian and cervical tumors.

A 2007 case report in the journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology noted the presence of talc in the pelvic lymph nodes of a 68-year-old woman with stage III ovarian cancer. The patient had sprinkled talcum powder on her genital area every day for 30 years.

A 2016 study led by Cramer suggests that women who regularly dust their genital region with talc have a 33 percent higher risk of developing ovarian cancer than women who don’t use baby powder.

A 2015 study by Dr. Roberta Ness had similar findings. It concluded that talc use boosts a woman’s ovarian cancer risk by 30% to 60% and eliminating the use of talcum powder could protect more than a quarter of women who develop ovarian cancer.

Types Of Cancer Caused By Talc Powder

If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, or another form or cancer, and have consistently used talcum powder products, you need to call me today. Read below and see the types of cancer that are leading to talcum powder lawsuits.

Ovarian cancer

Talc powder has been linked to increase the risk of developing ovarian cancer when applied to the genital area. It is suggested that talc particles may travel through the reproductive tract and cause inflammation, leading to the development of cancerous cells in the ovaries. Talc powder products were designed to used consistently to relieve irritation and moisture in the genital region.

Lung cancer

Inhaling talc powder has been linked to an increased risk of lung cancer. Talc particles, when breathed in, may accumulate in the lungs and potentially cause inflammation and damage to lung tissues, potentially leading to cancer. Talcum powder can be found in deodorants, baby powders, and dry shampoos. If used frequently, all of these products can lead to talc powder inhalation and the risk of lung cancer.


Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer that primarily affects the lining of the lungs (pleural mesothelioma) or the lining of the abdomen (peritoneal mesothelioma). It is primarily caused by exposure to asbestos, but has also been linked to talcum powder. Many of the products involved in talcum powder lawsuits are found in your bathroom. You may have been using them everyday. Although Mesothelioma is more rare, if you have any questions, it is important you call me to discuss your claim.

Cervical Tumors

Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the cells of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. It is primarily caused by persistent infection with high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV). Cervical cancer may develop slowly over several years, starting with pre-cancerous changes in the cells of the cervix, which can be detected through regular screenings like Pap tests and HPV tests. Because talcum powder injuries are commonly linked to feminine hygiene products, this may have been the cause. Symptoms of advanced cervical cancer can include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and an increase in vaginal discharge. If you you have been using genital talc, and have cervical tumors, you need to call me to discuss filing a talcum powder lawsuit.

You may be eligible to participate in a class action lawsuit! As a very concerned member of our community, I’m here to seek justice for injured victims, and to do whatever I can to hold companies responsible so consumer products are safe!

Talc is a naturally occurring mineral, and has been used in many products with household names. Let me know if you are suffering from any of these additional side effects as well.

Respiratory irritation

Inhalation of talc powder can cause irritation to the respiratory system, leading to symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. This is more commonly observed in individuals who are regularly exposed to talc powder.

Pulmonary fibrosis

Prolonged or heavy exposure to talc dust has been linked to the development of pulmonary fibrosis, a condition in which lung tissues become thickened and scarred. This can lead to progressive lung function impairment, breathing difficulties and sometime death.

If you have been harmed by talc powder usage, it is important to call me today!

You should not have to suffer the consequences of an asbestos-related disease alone!  Talcum powder manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson are being held responsible, to the tune of billions of dollars to compensate those that were injured by asbestos-contaminated talc products.

If you believe your cancer was caused by talcum powder use, call me and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

Don’t wait!  There is a statute of limitation on claims.  The clock starts after your cancer diagnosis.

I’ll be there for your every step of the way, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®

It really comes down to what people say and do when they don't think anyone that matters is listening or they'll get... anything in return.There's the Tim Misny you see on the billboards and on TV, but there's another Tim Misny that I know up close and personal.The Tim Misny I know is genuinely passionate about helping the hard working little folks who get pushed around the big folks. He actually, really honestly cares about people who run into bad luck at no fault of their own. Tim has quietly, out of the sight of cameras and with no fanfare shared generously with the marginalized in our society; single moms, Veterans and others without expecting anything in return.He calls them like he sees them and you wouldn't want to take your troubles to anyone else.read more

Mr. Misny is the best! I am a 27-year-old single mother, and I am finishing law school in May at Cleveland-Marshall... College of Law. When I found myself jobless during the height of the pandemic, I knew I needed help. Going into the legal profession, I wanted to be JUST LIKE Mr. Misny because I knew he was the most successful attorney in the industry. I called him up one day just for the hell of it to see if there was anyway he could help me. I never thought such a big name/reputation like him would respond to me. However, when he learned of my financial situation he PERSONALLY called my cell phone within 5 minutes of my email. Not only has he helped me secure employment, but he continues to teach me every single day what it takes to be the BEST lawyer in the legal profession. I am forever thankful for Mr. Misny. He changed my life. He continues to inspire me every single day, and I am so proud that he took me under his wing and is my mentor. He is the most intelligent, kindest, caring attorney I have ever met, and he is giving me the tools I need to be the most successful lawyer I can be o give my four-year-old son, Gregory, the life he deserves. THANK YOU MR. TIM MISNY. I owe my entire future legal career to you because if you didn't take the time out of your busy day to call me that day and help me when no one else would, I would not have been able to stay in law school. You change lives every single day. Keep being you Tim. There is no one like Tim Misny.read more

If I could reach into the sky just to pull more than 5 stars down for a rating I would! I have used other lawyers in... the past and it was such a pain to reach them when I needed them. Tim is in all honesty there for you. He gave me his personal phone number, and at anytime or any day he answered. If I had to leave a message I could count to 10 and he would already be calling me back. He also was willing to talk on the weekends! He didn’t just forward me to an impersonal automated system or a person with no experience. I will NEVER use another person for legal advice. He’s gracious enough to give me guidance whenever I have a question. No matter how complex. This may sound like an advertisement but I assure you this man was more in touch when I had an issue than my own family. A reasonable and caring family man who will MAKE THEM PAY!Thank you Timread more

Tim has created a highly visible and effective law practice, and despite his decades of experience, he has never once... forgotten why he got into this business in the first place: to help people. He puts his whole heart into his work, and he works hard for everyone he represents. He has a gift for tuning out the noise and tuning into the core of what his clients need, and making it clear he has heard them. As a result, we feel empowered. He is smart, resourceful, creative, positive, and solution-oriented. His abundant energy makes people feel better, stronger, and valued. He loves and promotes his community; he gives back generously, and he always leaves everything better than he found it. Tim is a true man of action, and a man of his word. Could not recommend him more highly.read more

As a young man, I worked at a local garden center. I came from a family that had too many problems to list. I felt I... was never destined to be anything good. I had always wanted to be a police officer since I was a little boy. But, one side of my family told me that I would never be good enough to do it. Anytime I brought it up, they knocked me down until I started to believe that I could never accomplish my dream. One day, about 20 years ago, while working at that garden center, a very tall man came in and asked me to help him select plants. As we walked around the garden center, he struck up a conversation with me. He was very friendly and kind. I was a skinny teenager in dirty blue jeans and a t shirt. This man was dressed very nicely and I was surprised at how nice he was to me. During our conversation, he asked me what I wanted to do with my life after school. I told him that I wanted to be a police officer but many people told me that I’d never make it. I told him how my very own father said I wasn’t smart enough, brave enough, and I was wasting my time. I remember looking at the ground while I explained this to him. The man stopped and got serious. His voice dropped an octave and he looked me dead in the eyes. He pointed his finger at me and told me that I could make anything of my life that I wanted. He told me that it was up to ME to make my life goals come true. He told me to ignore anybody who tells me otherwise. He assured me that if I studied hard in school and never gave up on my dreams that they would become a reality. He told me to say it. I said “I can do it”. In that moment, I thought that if a complete stranger saw something in me, than maybe it could be true.After I helped him through the checkout and he left, many different employees at the garden center asked me if I knew who that man was. I did not. They told me, “That’s Tim Misny!” Once I figured out “who” Tim Misny was, my confidence grew. It was a pivotal moment. One in which steered the rest of my life. His words stuck with me. I worked hard and obtained my Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I was hired by a local Law Enforcement Agency at the age of 21. I was sent to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Academy, which was an extremely tough place to be, to say the least. At the Academy, they try to break those who don’t have a determined spirit. On days I wanted to quit, I remembered Tim’s words. Maybe it was fate, maybe it was random chance.... I’ll never know But, Tim Misny helped me have the confidence and determination that was necessary to be where I’m at today. I’ve been a law enforcement officer for over 16 years. I’ve told this story to many of my coworkers.Tim, you’ll never understand how your words that spring day helped shape my future. Your words enabled me to provide a great life for myself and my family. I’m forever grateful.Mikeread more

Tim has represented me twice, once 30 years ago and again just recently. I was too young to fully appreciate his... expertise when he represented me the first time (as i was a minor who was the victim of an accident - he won for us, incidentally), but I'm old enough and wise enough now to really appreciate how truly great he is. First off, how many attorney's actually give you their cell phone number and actually answer? I would contend very, very few. Secondly, he has a street fighter mentality combined with a sharp legal intellect which makes you immediately think "I'm so glad this guy is on my side." I was really in a bind recently and Tim came through in spades - he is THE person I would call if I were in trouble or needed help - at a minimum he would know who I should talk to and direct me there (he knows his own limits, which is the key to a wise person) - at a maximum he would take on my fight himself and I'd have full confidence in his ability to deliver the best possible outcome for me - he fights for you like you're family - can't say it better than that.read more

He makes himself available day or night whether I need advice or just want to talk about the day. There a lot of stigmas about attorneys (and they are earned) but Tim Misny bucks the stereotype.
