prostate cancer UK tour bus 1 in 4

On tour

In the UK, 1 in 4 Black men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives compared to 1 in 8 for all men. We think this is unacceptable.

It's important for all Black men to know their risk, so this summer we toured the country to tell people about prostate cancer, the increased risk in Black men and what we could do to help.

It could be you who gets the disease. But it could also be you who saves a friend or family member by talking to them about prostate cancer.

Tour dates

Sadly our Prostate Cancer UK double decker bus has gone back into the depot for this year. However you can read all about what happened on tour in our news and views section.

  • send you a range of health information materials for you to give to your friends and family - it's information they need to know
  • receive regular emails featuring personal stories from others affected by prostate cancer, inspiring examples of how people have done amazing things to help beat the disease and lots of ways you can get involved and make a difference.

Why we have to act now

According to a recent YouGov survey only 8% of Black men surveyed knew they had an increased risk.

Be honest, before you read this, did you know your risk? Well think about how thousands of men – fathers, brothers, sons, and friends don’t know this vital information.

10,000 men are dying from prostate cancer every year. It’s unacceptable. That’s why we want you to be on our team, help us reach thousands of men and address this injustice.
