I used baby powder on genital area after a few waxes I had. so worried about ovarian cancer now. Should I get them removed to reduce the risk?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

i have followed the talcum powder and cancer claim for forty years and I think it is complete junk.
It has made a lot of money for a few people, and caused all kinds of distress and expense to ordinary, decent people. Don't be taken by people whho want to upset and frighten you for their own gain. Relax and get on with your life.
