Aims and objectives

This session will include high profile presentations regarding “Controversies in Prostate Cancer”. These will include chemoprevention, genomic alterations of early onset prostate cancer, PSA screening and risk stratification, active surveillance, avoidance of local treatment morbidity, various aspects of oligometastatic disease and how to deal with possible predictive genetic changes without any clinical evidence of prostate cancer. Finally the souvenir sessions provide delegates with an overview of the 29th annual meeting with short highlights and future perspectives in the souvenir session. In this session members of the scientific committee of the EAU will give these overviews of various topics important to urologists.
