Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
It seems to be an x-ray report of the chest.
It usually means he has a semi opaque shadow on the lower part of the right lung adjacent to the heart.
It usually means a small pneumonitis/mass.
What are the symptoms of your father?
Why was he advised an x-ray?
This finding if significant should be further confirmed by a CT scan of the chest.
Kindly consult your physician .
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your father a speedy recovery. Have a nice day.

Kindly consult a chest specialist.
