CIN = cervical intraepithelial neoplasia--- dysplasia of the cervical epithelium, often premalignant, characterized by various degrees of hyperplasia, abnormal keratinization, and presence of condylomata. Reported numerically, levels 1- ?

neoplasia = The pathological process that results in the formation and growth of a neoplasm. Literally new growth, usually refers to abnormal new growth and thus means the same as tumour, which may be benign or malignant. Unlike hyperplasia, neoplastic proliferation persists even in the absence of the original stimulus.

Treatment includes several topical agents to eradicate the lesions, cryosurgery (freezing), laser therapy, electrocauterisation or surgical removal. Alternate name: condyloma acuminata.
