In brief: Nondiagnostic

This x-Ray finding in and of itself is nondiagnostic and further evaluation will probably involve a chest ct scan.
Your physician will review your chest x-Ray with the radiologist and decide what further imaging studies are advisable as the density behind the heart shadow could be an abnormal blood vessel or a growth. A cardiothoracic surgeon may also be consulted.
