Goiter is a common disease in Malaysia. It can be classified as retrosternal, substernal, and intrathoracic goiter. According to this classification, the approach to surgery differs. We have two cases presented with a multinodular goiter with evidence from imaging and histopathology. Both cases were treated as intrathoracic goiters and underwent thyroidectomy with the postoperative pathology report indicating them as micropapillary carcinomas. We will discuss regarding management options for both patients according to the pathology. In conclusion, management will differ based on classification and postoperative pathology reports.
