In brief: PVC;s

Many a times this could be quite normal.
As long as you have had a full work-up and evaluation.

In brief: PVC

If pvcs are asymptomatic and rate is more than 10% of your heart rate in 24 hours then it should be treated.
Otherwise it could cause heart failure (tachycardia induced cardiomyopathy). If you have symptomatic pvcs then it should be treated irrespective of frequency of pvcs. You need electrolyte check up. If normal, then you need medications. If medication is not effective, then you need ablation.
