Prostate problems are extremely common in older men. This can be an embarrassing condition and lead to major changes in lifestyle, activities, mood and ultimately result in a poorer quality of life. If you are having difficulties with prostatism and having to urinate frequently, be assured that we have used cupping in a number of cases to successfully help with symptoms. Admittedly this is not an area that we treat commonly but we are happy to discuss your problems in more detail and you can decide whether you want to try cupping. We do have experience and would recommend that you should try cupping if your problems with prostate difficulties are significant and medicines are proving ineffective or giving side effects. Erection dysfunction is another area where the LCC is developing a larger evidence base. Again we suggest you discuss this with us in a little detail in order for you to decide whether cupping is a therapy you wish to try for this problem.
