BMC Urology is calling for submissions to our Collection on Advances in prostate disease. 

This Collection aims to consolidate the latest advancements in the field of urology, specifically focusing on prostate diseases, their diagnosis, treatment, and their implications for sustainable healthcare practices. Prostate diseases, including benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer, and prostatitis, continue to be significant health challenges worldwide. With a growing aging population, understanding and addressing these conditions is vital not only for individual well-being but also for advancing global health.


New Content ItemThis Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being.
