In brief: Male Mammo

You don't need a mammogram simply because you have large breasts/gynecomastia.
However, approx. 1% of breast cancer occurs in men, so if you have a lump or other symptom, see your doctor, a mammo may be appropriate in that situation.

In brief: Not necessarily

The size of breast does not mean you need a mammogram- unless there is some reason, like family history or a lump felt by an experienced surgeon.
