European Association of Urology (EAU) Guidelines

The EAU produces evidence-based guidelines for the management of both benign and malignant urological conditions. Being guidelines (and not protocols), they are advisory rather than proscriptive.

A complete collection of all EAU guidelines, in a single volume, can be downloaded using the link below.

In addition, the EAU has released an app containing a "pocket" version of its guidelines; to obtain this app, go to your provider's App Store and search for "EAU Pocket Guidelines".

  • Episode 2 – Healthy balls Healthy body
  • Episode 3 – How can you tell if your testicles are healthy
  • Episode 4 – The incredibly obvious thing you should do about painful testicle
