It may or may not be the cause, but it very likely is contributing to it.

BPH is very prevalent in men over the age of 50. While erectile dysfunction is also somewhat common in older men there's no relation between the two disorders physiologically. Confusion sometimes arises because a prescription drug ( Cialis 5 mg daily ) has an indication for both disorders.

In brief: Yes
There is a connection between BPH and impotence.
Improving urinary symptoms in men can improve erectile function as well.

In brief: Not likely
The only relationship between BPH and erectile dysfunction is that both become more common as one ages.
There is no cause and effect relationship.

BPH has little or no effect on quality of erections.

There are several medical ways to treat benign prostate hypertrophy before jumping to surgeries.
The neatest latest solution is to use Cialis daily. Cialis is the only erectile dysfunction drug approved by the fda for use in treating symptoms of bph. So you end up w/2for1 benefit. Of course, it's important to look for cause(s) of BPH & ed rather than just prescribe medication. So go see your doc!
