I am a business professional-so I do not understand "medical" terminology-Please advise-

Was in emergency room yesterday-MD aspirated 40cc of fluid from my knee--what does a "cc" equate to?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Respectfully submitted;


Hi Rita,

The abreviation cc stands for cubic centimeter. One fluid ounce is 29.57353 cc so 40 cc is  40/29.57353 = 1.35 fluid ounces.

I hope this helps,
