Is there a way to prevent my prostate from growing as I get older?

In brief: Maybe

Unfortunately, as men age, their prostates tend to grow usually causing more and more bothersome urinary symptoms.
Certain medications (called 5-alpha reducatase inhibitors) used to treat bothersome lower urinary tract symptoms (slow stream, weak stream, incomplete bladder emptying to name a few) can shrink the overall size of the prostate.
