What does all this mean? SUV Pet Scans

Hi, I am pretty new to all of this. I went in for a routine appointment due to a cough which led to a CT scan, which revealed a lung nodule for which I was advised for a PET. Good news- my lung nodule didn’t show any activity... but the PET scan did shows a .7x.8 cm hyper metabolic focus in the right lobe of thyroid gland (SUV 20.2) as well as a 1.2 cmminimally hyper metabolic nodule of the right breast (SUV 2.75). The soonest appointments for specialists are another week away. I am trying to figure out what all this means. My primary care is hesitant to tell me any information, but “strongly recommends” for an immediate follow-up with a breast specialist and endocrinologist. I have been googling, but have no been able to find any information pertaining this. I feel like I’m just going from one appointment to the next. What do the high uptake in the thyroid indicate? Should I be concerned with cancer? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
