In brief: Bigger prostate

I am guessing that you refer to urine flow which becomes more difficult in men as the prostate enlarges with age.
It pushes on the urine outflow tract cause the symptoms of urgency, night frequency, slow and low flow and incomplete emptying of the bladder. Evaluation by your urologist to rule out cancer is needed. Meds to increase flow are available which can help.

In brief: Input vs output

As we age, the arteries carrying blood to the organ become more narrow (espec.
With high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes etc) and thus decreasing blood flowing there. Also, the veins carrying blood away actually become larger and thus move blood out too quickly , thus causing ed. Gentle compression of these veins (i.E purse-string/rubberband)at base of penis can improve erection. Good luck.
