In brief: Yes.
Prostate enlargement is very common in men, especially as they age.
Painful bladder syndrome (pbs) is less common, but can arise and independently create potentially debilitating urinary symptoms. There is no clear link between the two, but both can contribute to urinary bother. If you suffer from both, please work with your urologist to work through these entities.
