In brief: No

An imperforate anus occurs when the aftergut is forming & fails to join with a dimpling of the anal skin.
This occurs sporaticly or associated with other birth defects.Anal cancer is not linled to this malformation. There is evidence that hpv (human papaloma virus) which thrives in anogenital skin is linked to anal cancer.

In brief: ANAL CA=HPV cause

Anal cancer associated with hpv (human papilloma virus).
The number of cases is rapidly increasing so yet another reason to get vaccinated with gardisil: ages 9--26 both sexes.
