In brief: Small nodule.

When something is echogenic, it's brighter than the adjacent tissues or the background tissue of the organ.
Technically it should be termed "hyperechoic" but "echogenic" is more commonly used.. It also means that it's more likely (not always) solid than fluid. A "nodule" is small, usually less than 2 cm in size.

In brief: Bright

Echogenic means brighter or whiter than the tissues around it.
Hypoechoic would mean darker or blacker than the tissues around it.
