I've only been dealing with this for a few months, so I'd welcome any other words of wisdom.
My Staging quote below is from Cancer.org. Seems even in the medical field there's a disagreement into CIS - is it Cancerous or not. I guess for those who say it's not Cancerous (pre-cancerous), CIS would be stage 0. For Cancer.org and others, it has it's own stage of CIS Tis (Bladder Cancer).

With my Doctors advice and treatment, it's a life time of care and observation and I've come to the point of giving up on terminology. I've got Cancer and I'm fighting it!

Using the following, CIS is in it's own Stage:

Staging
• T0: No evidence of cancer
• Ta: A non-invasive papillary (finger-like) tumor
• Tis: A non-invasive flat carcinoma (carcinoma in situ)
• T1: Infiltration of the lamina propria
• T2A: Infiltration of the inner muscle
