This chapter will highlight the main characteristics of processes like regeneration and tumorigenesis in skin. The chapter describes the skin regeneration pathways and it elaborates on interesting link regarding regeneration triggering tumorigenesis in cutaneous tissue. Stem cells that are the key player in non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers will be described in separate sections.
