    The aim of this session is to discuss and debate about the role of screening, early detection and optimal treatment of localised prostate cancer. The role of screening based on the most updated results of prospective randomised studies will be debate and different PSA-based approaches will be discussed. In addition, strengths and limits of prostate MRI in improving our ability to detect of clinically significant prostate cancer will be covered. Finally, the optimal management of localised prostate cancer including local treatment and active surveillance will be discussed.
