Smooth ER - Metabolic processes: synthesizes lipids, phospholipids as in plasma membranes and steroids.
Mitochondria- generates ATP, creates energy
Chloroplast- plant cell organelles that convert light energy into stable chemical energy via photosynthetic processes.
Central Vacuole- stores salt, minerals, nutrients, proteins, pigments, helps in plant growth
Cytoskeleton- helps cells maintain their shape and internal organization, provides mechanical support that enables cells to carry out a central function
Ribosomes- Area of protein synthesis
Rough ER- Modifies & transports proteins
Golgi Apparatus- "packages" proteins & transports proteins
Vesicle- "containers", sends things to their destinations
Lysosome- digestive enzymes, digests worn organelles
Osmosis: transportation of water across the cell membrane
Simple Diffusion: form of diffusion that does not need membrane proteins
Facilitated diffusion: passive movement of molecules along the concentration gradient
Active transport: movement across molecules/ions to a higher concentration
Endocytosis: substances are brought into the cell
Exocytosis: transports molecules out of the cell
ENERGY-EXPENDING TRANSPORT NEEDS ENERGY, PASSIVE DOES NOT NEED A LOT

After rereading Case Report, answer the following question.
You are: a medical assistant working with Susan Lee, MD, in her primary care clinic at Fulwood Medical Center.
Your patient is:
Ms. Anna Clemons, a 20-year-old waitress, who is a new patient. She has noticed a lump in her right neck. On questioning, you elicit that she has lost about 8 pounds in weight in the past couple of months, has felt tired, and has had some night sweats.
Her vital signs (VS) are normal. There are two firm, enlarged lymph nodes in her right neck. Physical examination is otherwise unremarkable, and there is no evidence of infection in her head, throat, or upper respiratory tract.
Ms. Clemons has cancerous nodes in her neck. They were not caused by metastatic cancer but by a cancer of the lymph nodes called Hodgkin lymphoma.
