Chordoma is a rare type of primary bone cancer usually found in the skull or spine. It accounts for only one percent of central nervous system cancers. It belongs to the group of cancer called sarcoma, which include cancers of the muscle, cartilage and bones.
Slow-growing chordoma may be found at any site along the axial skeleton. It is frequently found at the base of the spine, tailbone (sacral) or base of the skull. Chordoma don’t metastasize to distant parts of the body, but it can spread to surrounding tissues. A chordoma must be removed completely to lessen the chance of recurrence.
