I got the results for a echocardiography report and it says on one of the summaries mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy what those it means?

In brief: Thick walls

It means that the measurement of the wall thickness is increased.
If you have had uncontrolled high blood pressure, that may make sense. IF not, it's possible the echo is over-reading it. One millimeter of increased thickness can result in the report saying "mild LVH" .The test isn't super accurate for subtle changes.
