In brief: BPH at Young age

It would be very unlikely to have BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy) at a "young" age, unless you consider 45 years old as "young".
;) most BPH does not become symptomatic until 45 or 50 years of age, typically with frequent urination and getting up at night to urinatte. If these symptoms are happening at a young age we tend to think of urethral stricture disease rather than bph..

In brief: Possible by report

But very uncommon.
Prostatitis, bladder neck obstruction, posterior urethral valves & urethral strictuire need to be ruled out first.

In brief: Rarely Possible

Though it is rather rare but does happen in some under the age of 30 As the age increases the incidence of BPH increase as well
