I have a brain tumor, which they are saying is one of two types, either panus, or chordoma. I would like to know if this type panus is rare or not.

Anon - Is it possible your doctor meant pannus? Patients with rheumatoid arthritis sometimes develop abnormal, granulated tissue known as rheumatoid pannus. This occurs more frequently than chordoma tumors which are rare.

Can you provide more information? I am not finding any information regarding "panus brain tumor".

We do have information regarding What is Chordoma? (Expert Video).

Here is more information regarding brain tumors: Top 10 types of Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors.

Do you have your diagnostic results with you?
