Go for FNA: I hope you are talking about thyroid nodule. Hypoechoic or hyperechoic how sound wave is reflecting in thyroid tissue. Hypoechoic will have higher incidence of cancer you should have simple painless fine needle aspiration biopsy. Even if it is ca highly curable especially young age.Do not worry and go for it I am sure your doctor already advised you.
