Özet

Objective: Considering the diameter of the largest tumor while determining T stage in multifocal papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMCs) might cause underestimation of tumoral stage. We aimed to investigate the effect of total tumor diameter (TTD) on tumor node metastasis (TNM) classification in multifocal T1a PTMCs.
