Spots on bones, all left side of the body?

My Mother is a breast cancer survivor - after mastectomy - 3 years now.

She (slightly) rolled her left ankle few weeks ago, ER xrayed, said to treat as a sprain. However, two spots showed up on the xray - one on tibia, one on ankle - unknown, referred to other doctors for diagnosis.

Had several nuclear tests, Pet scan, CT, and MRI, no cancer present! But did find two more spots - one near the left elbow and one near the left shoulder. Now being referred to a bone specialist... next week.

In the meantime, I'm seeking possible diagnosis' - my thoughts so far:

Simple Bone Cyst
Paget's Disease
Fibrous Dysplasia

Any thoughts are welcome - waiting another week for a diagnosis is really wearing on me. Thanks for your time and comments!
