the protocol there is to get a baseline feel for them and then just note any changes
a baseline mammogram wouldnt hurt, either, i dont think
at least that is what my dr did for me, especially since there is a history of breast cancer in my family
i started at 35, i think?
there is a new procedure, too, which allows them to see even smaller tumors
probably overkill for most but valuable for those with dense boobies and family hx
will be mentioning it at my next appt

if you've never been instructed on how to perform one, ask your doctor. it's good to have a baseline and know what's normal for you, as others have said, so a mammogram isn't a bad idea either.
