No. Pinching the skin cannot cause cancer. While the direct cause of cancer is relatively unknown, it is known that bumps, bruises, and yes, even pinching the skin, cannot be the culprit. Cancer is the abnormal division and formation of cells in the body. While pinching your skin may cause bruising and pain, it will not cause skin cells to mass produce abnormally.
