Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. BPH is usually an age related hypertrophy, UTI may not cause it but worsen the symptoms for sure. Consult your urologist and let them decide what si best for you.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
