In general no: But occasionally will loose so much blood constantly then could be dangerous due to loss of blood. Do not self diagnose first make sure they are, not a tumor. You have to get them removed for the above reason, long standing intractability all other measures failed, complete prolapse with severe pain and unable to reduce them
