Further examination: Mammogram in someone as young as you are does not as well as in older woman (greater than 40). If you are feeling a mass in the breast, i recommend finding someone who can perform a breast exam and ultrasound, who can then recommend whether a biopsy is needed.

Not sure I : completely understand the question. Do you feel a new lump? Then you need to see your doctor. Ultrasound would be the imaging study of first choice at your age.
