In brief: Possible, but

Cancer of sinuses usually not attributed due to chronic sinusitis, however highter incidence is seen in wood workers ( japan) and metal worker who develops sinusitis due to dust inhalation, higher incidence of cancer especially sqamous cell cancer is seen more often.

In brief: Not likely

Cancer of your sinuses often grows to block your sinus drainage pathways which can lead to sinusitis.
So often they can be present together. But sinusitis does not cause cancer
