What does the lab test report indicate?

Hi, my brother received a letter from his last chest (PA and LATERAL)examination stating there is a fullness in the mediastinum and enlargement of the cardiac siihouette with prominence of the left ventricle. Also with a mid prominence of the central vessels. The examination is otherwise normal. What does this exactly mean and what steps should he take in order to have detailed results?

Your brother may need ECHO to confirm the findings.
