In brief: Yes

Aging affects the prostate in 2 ways: the prostate gets larger with age and older men have a higher incidence of prostate cancer.
Testicular function and primarily testosterone production also decrease with age. Thus sexual function, desire and erectile function tends to decrease with age. This can be made worse if you are a smoker, diabetic or overweight. Patricio gargollo, pediatric urologist, .
