I can cope with it if I have the information needed to make decisions. DEAR READER: The prognosis for bone cancer — indeed, for any malignancy — depends on the type of tumor. Some bone cancers, are highly malignant and resistant to treatment; the prognosis is poor. On the other hand, other types seem to respond quite satisfactorily to chemotherapy and radiation. For example, osteosar- coma of children, once a dreaded and fatal bone tumor, is now curable in a high percentage of cases. Your doctor, preferably with the help of a cancer specialist called an oncologist, is the person who can best answer your questions. To give you related information, I am sending you a- copy of my Health Report "Viruses and Cancer." Other readers who would like a copy should send <2 plus a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope to P.O. Box 2017, Murray Hill Station, New York, NY 1015«. Be sure to mention the title. DEAR DR. GOTT: A friend was told that he has R«iter's syndrome. He's really shocked and doesn't want to talk about it. Could you explain it to me? DEAR READER: Reiter's syndrome is a peculiar and poorly understood disease characterized by arthritis (joint inflammation), conjunctivitis (eye inflammation) and urethritis (inflammation of the urethra! tube leading from the bladder). The condition can appear after an attack of dysentery or it can be sexually transmitted. The ailment can be seen in women, but it appears to be more common in men. The syndrome is suspected when a patient develops painful joints, red and scratchy eyes and urethral discharge; it is confirmed by a blood test for human leukocyte antigen (HLA- B27) and a negative culture of the urethral discharge. Treatment consists of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs. Although some patients recover, many tend to have repeated episodes Of inflammation. In a few patients, relapse is associated with a variety of illnesses, including uicerations in the mouth, rheumatism, spinal arthritis, rash, tendon irritation and asthma. Reiter's syndrome was formerly thought to be a self-limited process; however, recent studies have shown that 80 percent of patients have evidence of disease as long as five years after treatment. DEAR DR. GOTT: We recently installed a sauna and used it at least twice a week during the entire fall and winter. We've had no illness, unlike in other winters. Is there any truth to our belief that the sauna is responsible for our improved health? DEAR REAPER: Probably not. Some people, particularly residents of the Scandinavian countries, attribute healing qualities to sauna baths. And perhaps the moisture breathed in does help soothe the upper respiratory tract However, I am unaware of any reports in U.S. medical literature proving that saunas improve health.
