There's no evidence that the saw palmetto helps to decrease the prostate size. However, The finasteride has been shown in multiple studies to decrease the size of the prostate between 25-30% after 12 months. If you have a prostate that is larger than 30 g, then you would benefit from continuing this medication. Hope this helps
In your case, since cancer was never officially diagnosed, there is no indication to remove the prostate. Precancerous cells do not necessitate prostate removal. You just need to have your PSA monitored periodically to see whether or not it increases. If it does, then you may need to have a repeat biopsy done to see if you have developed any cancer.
