Who we are?

European School of oncology


in partnership with The European Prostate Cancer Coalition

Prostate Cancer Units Network is the first international network of clinical units dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. The project is a initiative of the European School of Oncology in partnership with Europa Uomo – the European Prostate Cancer Coalition – with the aim to promote the multidisciplinary and multiprofessional management of prostate cancer patients.

Our network includes Prostate Cancer Units that fulfil minimum requirements (see Eligibility Gate) to be considered referral centres. This website offers an online Prostate Cancer Units Directory that provides detailed information about our members in the attempt to broadcast the state-of-the-art standards for multidisciplinary prostate cancer care.


The development of the initiative is supported by the following publications organised with the contribution of several dedicated professionals  and supported by leading scientific organisations:
