A chordoma is a rare primary malignant bone tumor that usually occurs along the spine or when the skull rests on the spine (skull base). This type of tumor usually occurs at the skull base, spine or lower spine (sacral bone). It consists of small remnants of a cellular spiral in the embryo that develops in the intervertebral discs of the spine. Chordomas are twice as common in men as in women, and most tumors occur between the ages of 50 and 70, although they can occur at any age.
