Retesting: Here, your scope is narrow. You have to test the function which caused an error and threw an error.  This kind of testing is done to make sure that the previous bug is resolved.Regression Testing: is the kind of testing which is done once a bug is fixed. During regression testing a tester has to make sure that previous bug is fully fixed and it has not caused any malfunctioning. All related functions are also tested  during regression testing.

Regression Testing: Regression testing is applied on modied field, and when functionality is added to existing functionality.For Example: When we found any defects found We write these defects to defect log and assign to developer for fixing, then the developer check defect, if it's defect then the developer fixes and make modification & resent to tester.Here again the Tester will check for defect again open or closed. This process is called as Regression Testing.Note: Regression Testing is done on "The defect which is solved is affecting the other functionality in the same application or not.Thank you.FromK.

Retesting :- Testing only the fixedRegression Testing:-Regression testing is any type of software testing which seeks to uncover regression bugs. Regression bugs occur whenever software functionality that previously worked as desired, stops working or no longer works in the same way that was previously planned. Typically regression bugs occur as an unintended consequence of program changes.Common methods of regression testing include re-running previously run tests and checking whether previously fixed faults have re-emerged.

Retesting: Is testing the same functionality again ad again with multiple
sets of data.
Regression: Is testing the already tested functionality again and again in
order to come to a conclusion that functionality is working fine.
It can be done in 2 scenarios:
1) When ever test engineer identified a defect, after rectification once
again we need to test the defected functionality as well as its related
functionality.
2) When ever some new features are added to the application then we need to
test the related functionalities of those new functionalities.

Testing the same functionality again and again with multiple sets of values is called retesting..
Testing the already tested functionality is called regression testing. generally it was done in 2 scenarios
1.Once finding the defects in the application it was sent to developers once the next build ios released we will test the defected functionality and its related functionalities.
2.Whenever new features are added to the application we will test the the related features with those new features.

Retesting means simply testing the entire app either before finding bug or after fixing the bug

but in regression testing we will check the impact of that bug on remaining parts while fixing I.e whether it has caused any effect to remaining parts of the application
