Conclusion

There are multiple lesions mainly in the left breast and at least one lesion in the right breast. Also there is a subcutaneous lesion in the upper arm. Biopsy proved all the lesions to be metastases of a multiple myeloma.
Watch out for oval and round solid breast lesions, because not all of them are benign. Classify the oval lesions at least as BIRADS 3 or 4A and classify round lesions as 4A. When they are multiple biopsy at least the largest or most suspicious looking lesion.
