Need information re: tortuosity of thoracic aorta and abdominal phlebolith

After a recent fall, I had xrays of my chest done.  Included in the report, it said, "there is tortuosity of the thoracic aorta without pulonary vascular congestion.
Does this require further investigation?  My physician didn't mention this at my follow up visit but I had a copy of the xray report.  I don't know if that means it's nothing to worry about or did she overlook it?
Another xray I had a while ago stated that I had a phlebolith somewhere in my abdomen.  I know that phlebo means vein and lith means stone.  Is this a dangerous condition.  Should it be removed?
