Sitting with arms raised over the head-dimpling of the skin over a mass is usually a visible sign of breast cancer. dimpling is accentuated with the clients arms raised over the head or the pectoral muscles tightened. sitting with arms relaxed at the sides gives the examiner a general impression of the breasts. leaning forward with arms in front of the client demonstrates whether the breasts fall freely from the chest wall. supine with the arm extended over the head is the position for palpation of the breast. nursing process step: assessment cognitive level: application client need: physiological integrity
