In brief: Probably not, but...

Does your large or little constipation mean long or short in its duration? Generally speaking, someone at 25 is less likely to have an enlarged prostate causing rectal blockage.
To verify your concern, going to see urologist who will solve your fear with fact, not with speculation or imagination after good history, proper digital rectal exam (dre) with or without ua or other tests.

In brief: Prostate

The prostate is near the rectum but it would be very unlikely that even an enlarged prostate could cause any bowel problems.
