Hello whatever your age be. Saving a tooth is always recommended as extraction can be done anytime in life but chance for saving that tooth would come only once. I haven't seen the xray but if a dentist has advised root canal better do it.

yes root canal treatment saves the tooth.. go for it
If doctor has suggested rct then go in for it. You may get a second opinion done as well
If already done checkup and advice for root canal treatment then kindly go for it.
Get rct done followed by filling n cap.
