Paracentesis is a type of biopsy. A biopsy is a procedure where a doctor removes tissue samples from areas for further examinations for conditions, such as cancer. In paracentesis, the doctor uses a needle to remove fluid from the abdomen to determine if the fluid contains cells that can indicate a condition.
