A woman whose nipples are pointing in different directions-nipples should point in the same direction outward and slightly upward. a change in the direction of point of the nipple is suggestive of an abnormality. it is normal for a woman to have one breast slightly larger than the other unless this is a recent change. the presence of striae (stretch marks) is also considered within normal limits. a bilateral, fine, visible network of veins is considered a normal finding. nursing process step: assessment cognitive level: application client need: physiological integrity
