The weight of a mast is very important if you did not plan ahead and put
it inside the tower at ground level before building the tower or if you
decide to change masts after the tower is up.   The 20' or 24' steel
masts with .25" or .50" wall thickness will really test your metal.

If you have this problem,  three inch foam filled fiberglass highline
poles 20 feet long works as a ginpole.   You must rig a way to fasten it
to the side of the tower and install a pulley on the end but it works.  
A crane would work also $$$$
