In brief: Why do you ask?

If you have a first degree relative with it, yes.
If you have possible cardiac symptoms, you should have a cardiac evaluation regardless.

In brief: Not necessarily

Only if you have a family history of a relative who has suffered from sudden cardiac death, or you yourself have a heart murmur, or been diagnosed with heart failure or a significant cardiac rhythm disturbance do you need to be tested for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
