Chordoma

Chordoma is a rare tumor that usually occurs in the spine and base of the skull. It is a malignant tumor that grows fairly slowly. It can spread to other organs, usually the lungs. It represents only about 1 percent of all malignant bone tumors. Chordomas grow slowly. Patients often have symptoms for a long time (more than a year) before they seek medical attention.
