We all know that carcinoma in situ means the cancer is superficial, not invading through a structure, and generally conveying risk of becoming invasive cancer. This is most prevalently used in breast cancer. However, i cannot contrast to cin. I do not know what that is.

I think CIN refers to cervical intraepithelia neoplasia which is a premalignant change. This is not a cancer compared to carcimona in situ which is a cancer but has not locally spread.
