In brief: Not typically
This would not be a typical symptom of bph.
If you are having back pain and do not have a history of this, you should see your doctor to make sure it is nothing serious.

In brief: BPH with infection
BPH alone no, but chronic prostatitis, which can cause prostatic hyertrophy, does.
This was shown in a study by dr. Ragnar romanus and published in "acta scandinavia" in the early 50's. Most men with spondylitis had chronic prostatiitis in his study. Certainly a venereal link does exist.

In brief: Here are some ...
Lower backache is not usually related with BPH alone and more commonly with DJD of the spine coming along with aging in many men.
DJD-related lower backache tends to be worse in the morning and better to fade off after walking / moving around. So, the detailed Hx on the natures of backache is essential to suggest what may cause backache besides physicals + tests as needed. More? Ask Doc timely...
