not sure if this works but ......

lymphocytes : any of the colorless weakly motile cells originating from stem cells and differentiating in lymphoid tissue (as of the thymus or bone marrow) that are the typical cellular elements of lymph, include the cellular mediators of immunity, and constitute 20 to 30 percent of the white blood cells of normal human blood

Lymphotcytic tissue in the thyroid sounds like typical damage from Hashimoto's. Oddly, it's also mentioned with Grave's diseaes. The damage must be similar.

Here's a link.

Not sure it's much help.
