In brief: See breast doctor.
Dimpling of the skin and/or nipple inversion are both breast changes that can be associated with breast cancer, therefore, i recommend that you see your primary care doctor for a referral to a breast specialist.
Depending on your age and examination findings, they may want to get a mammogram +/- ultrasound. Of course, there are many false alarms, but it's better to prove that it's not a cancer.

And any time there are clinical (exam) findings, try to see a breast surgeon first before allowing a radiologist to perform any invasive procedure. While they may be ok at performing the procedure, the procedure itself can (sometime severely) affect the physical exam.

In brief: Possible
Skin dimpling could be due to a benign tumor, scar, trauma or cancer.
Best to get medical evaluation.
