In an application currently in production,one of module of code is being modified.

Is it necessary to re-test the whole application or is it enough to just test functionally associated with that module?

It totally depends on the the module. Is it co-related with other modules of the application? Or Is it totally independent functionality. If it is completely independent then its OK to just re-test that particular module with some smoke testing on the application  or else complete retesting of the application is necessary.

in either case it is better to retest the whole application again i would say.

Not feasible every time due to many factors in production environment.
