In brief: Question not clear

Carcinogens are agents that result in development of cancer through different mechanisms.
Cancer can kill, so you could say the carcinogen caused death indirectly. Also, certain carcinogens (like high dose radiation or certain chemicals) can kill directly without causing cancer.
