In brief: Yes!

Both alcohol and tobacco (regardless of route - cigarettes, chew, whatever) increase the risk of a number of cancers.
Smoking is a risk factor for lung, bladder, oral, esophageal, pancreatic, and renal cell cancer, to name just a few. Alcohol is a risk factor for liver, oral, esophageal, pharynx/larynx, and stomach cancer.
