In brief: No
Bladder infections per se do not cause prostate enlargement.
Prostates tend to enlarge slowly with advancing age. Rapid prostate enlargement can be caused by prostatitis (actual infection of the prostate gland). Chronic bladder infections can lead to to prostatitis which in turn indirectly can cause prostate enlargement.
