No. A "cc" (cubic centimeter) is an old term for a milliliter (ml) which is a unit of volume.

A milligram (mg) is a unit of mass.

Where is 50mg on a 3cc syringe?

The 50 mg is the dose for whatever you are taking. Whatever you are taking should say or you should know what the dose is for example 25 mg/ml therefore you would have to take two ml or 2 cc, if it was 100 mg/ml you would have to take 1/2 ml or cc. ml and cc are the same but mg is what the dose is.

What does 50mg equal to cc on a syringe?

You are comparing apples and oranges. mg is a mass, cc is a volume. In order to answer your question, you would need to either know the substance or the density of the substance. For example, 50 mg of a dense liquid would take up less volume than 50 mg of a less-dense liquid. One cc of water weighs 1.0 gram (the same as 1,000 milligrams), so 50 mg (of water) is equivalent to 0.05 cc. The algebraic formula would be: 1 cc/1000 mg = x cc/50 mg; and x = 0.05.
