Because in Toxic multinodular goitre you have a fear of malignancy and the best single diagnostic confirmation to rule out malignancy is biopsy so you better take it out.
In Grave's disease you don't have that cancer risk and patients do very well on antithyroid medication and so no need for surgery.
