In brief: Yes

Prostate enlargement is a known and common process which occurs in men as they age.
This is due to the continuous hormonal stimulation of the prostate gland from testosterone. Prostate enlargement may also cause urinary symptoms, as can cancer, and an office evaluation will help differentiate the 2.
