In brief: May not need treatin

Depending on your age and risk factors you may need a stress test.
If you feel well and no structural heart disease nothing more needs be done beyond making sure electrolytes are normal. Treatment indicated if you are significantly symptomatic and heart pump is weak.

In brief: It depends

It depends on symptoms and frequency of pvcs.
If you don't have any symptoms and the total burden of PVC is low (<10%), no treatment is necessary. If you have symptoms or PVC burden is high, a beta blocker may be tried. If this doesn't correct it, depending on the location of pvcs, an ablation may be curative. Usually an electrophysiologist (ep doctor) is best to handle this problem.
