If a doctor cuts a skin cancer out of your eyebrow will hair regrow to cover it?

In brief: No, but...
If skin is removed that contains hair follicles, the resulting scar will not regrow hair. Often, when these cancers are removed from the brows, the adjacent skin can be moved over, resulting in a natural looking brow without a gap in the hair.

In brief: It depends.
It would likely depend on the kind of skin cancer, and how extensive it is.
Melanoma would likely involve melanocytes and not hair follicles, but wide excision could be needed. Squamous and basal cell would get local removal but might involve some hair follicles. Either way, the rest of the skin can be stitched up, and hair on either side can cover it. If not it's still small price to pay.
