In brief: Not all invasive

Cancers start in situ, and not all in situ cancers ultimately invade.
..But a lot do. So, there is no timetable of when that you can rely on. It is reasonable to take care of in situ when you find it, rather than trust an unreliable actor to behave itself the way you might like.

In brief: Variable

The length of time varies for the transition between various pre-cancerous lesions and development of cancer.
Not all carcinomas-in-sittu become cancerous. However, if a carcinoma-in-situ has been diagnosed, prompt treatment is strongly advised.
