Frequently Asked Questions
According to a recent study from the National Institute of Health, women who used chemical hair-straightening products are at a higher risk for uterine cancer. The study followed over 33,000 women for nearly 11 years, and during that time 378 uterine cases were diagnosed. The woman who reported frequent use, meaning more than four times per year, were more than twice as likely to develop uterine cancer than those who did not use the products.
Overall rates of uterine cancer have been rising in the United States among all women, but Black women die of uterine cancer at twice the rate that white women do, according to a study from March 2022. In 2016, deaths from uterine cancer among Black women were nearly twice as high as any other racial or ethnic group. According to the American Cancer Society, the survival rate for Black women is 63% compared to 84% for white women.
If you or someone you care about was diagnosed with uterine cancer after frequent use of chemical straighteners or relaxers, you may be able to sue the company that makes the product. Buckfire Law is currently investigating these claims. If you developed uterine cancer after exposure to chemical hair straighteners or relaxers, you may be entitled to compensation.
