1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, but not often

Any inflammatory lesion can cause local lymph node enlargement however, enlarged nodes in the groin are not commonly associated with these perianal problems.
See a surgeon they can assess and treat the perianal problems and evaluate the nodes.

In brief: No

No, generally not.
A peri rectal abscess or fistula might, but there are many non-anal possibilities. See your primary care physician.
