In brief: No

Epididymitis is and infection and /or inflammation of the epididymis which is a structure on the testicle.
Diseases of this structure will not lead to an enlarged prostate and very unlikely to lead to prostatitis.

In brief: No

Acute epidydimitis can lead to a scrotal abscess and to testicular atrophy.
I can also become chronic.As for prostatitis,it is usually the other way round:prostatitis can cause epididymitis. Enlarged prostate,definitely not.Hope this helps.
