Thyroid cancer generally metastasises to lung parenchyma while endobronchial metastasis is rare. Tracheal invasion may lead to haemoptysis or dyspnea. Most patients who present with thyroid carcinoma have well differentiated histology, having an excellent prognosis. We report a case of thyroid swelling which presented with haemoptysis as chief complaint which on investigation came out to be papillary variant of thyroid carcinoma with lung metastasis and tracheal invasion in a 46-year-old male.
