Anyone know of any sites with pictures of breast dimpling?

I have breast issue after breast issue, so many that I put off doing breast exams. So I just did my first of the month breast exam and felt a new and quite tender lump on the side of my left breast at about 3:00, almost under my arm. I didn't think that much of it since I am very lumpy and bumpy until I looked in the mirror and saw what I think is a dimple about an inch below where the lump is. I had noticed some pulling there a couple months ago but decided it was just breast sag from approaching middle age. But this is more pronounced, more like a dimple. I can only see it in certain positions, and not when I lift my arms over my head.

 anyway, if anyone knows of any pics online it might be helpful. I can't go running to the doc every time I find a new thing. I'm already on high-risk monitoring and am scheduled for an MRI in June.
