Probably ok at your age. See your doc. Mammogram at your age not usally helpful, but may need an ultrasound .

For the average risk woman, screening mammo should begin at 40. For very high risk patients, for example BRCA gene carriers, screening can begin earlier. Have your doctor assess your risk profile to see where you fit in.
