In brief: Yes
Anal cancer is treated with radiation and combined chemotherapy for stage 1 to3.
Even the best stage cure is 90 percent not 100 percent. So patients are watched and if they recur locally they are salvaged by surgery.

In brief: Yes
Nothing in life is 100%.
Anal cancer is often treated successfully with chemotherapy and radiation. There remains some risk that the cancer can come back.
