Depends: In younger females less than 40 breast mammograms would be ideal if you have a family history of breast cancer. Commonly in younger females lumps get tender or more pronounce during menstruation. If you are younger and if this lump is changing in size or getting tender see your doctor for an evaluation. If you are >=50 you should ask your doctor for screening mammogram per USPSTF guideline.
