In brief: Possibly.

Colon cancers in the rectosigmoid area can cause abdominal or back pain so this can quite possibly radiate, or be felt in the buttocks at least some of the time.
Other colon cancers can have volvulus, perforation and fistula as complications so these also might be felt in the buttocks.

In brief: Not likely

However, low rectal or anal cancer can cause perianal pain as well as pain with bowel movements.
