What does this mean? And should I worry big time?

There is no thyroid nodule identified however there is a right parathyroid nodule identified measuring 1.4 x 6 cm.

Nuclear medicine parathyroid study and/or MRI of the neck is highly recommended

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the care of this patient.

There isn't really enough information to comment fully.  Most of us have 4 parathyroid glands that reside directly behind the thyroid gland.  The only relationship the parathyroids have with the thyroid is their location.  

If you have additional information regarding this parathyroid nodule, it would be helpful if you could provide it.
