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.

Yes, tanning beds can cause skin cancer. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Using tanning beds increases your chances of getting each type. The Skin Cancer Foundation's website is a great resource for information about skin cancer.
