Bothering you? Yes!: If your sinuses have any sort of growth or aren't clean and clear and the bother you constantly the go see an ENT and see if you need to have your sinuses cleaned out. It's not as bad as it sounds really. Better than suffering.

Depends: If they are large enough to give you symptoms of pain and pressure or tooth related pain or affect the ability of the sinuses to drain properly then it might be something to consider discussing your options with an ENT doc or oral/maxillofacial surgeon. If you decide to have them surgically removed be sure to request that the tissue is biopsied.
