1 doctor agrees

In brief: ?Heart ok otherwise

You basically need to know that your heart is structurally normal.
Based upon your age and risk factors you may need a stress test to be sure you do not have obstructive coronary artery disease. Generally treatment of pvcs may do more harm than good. Treat if there is progressive weakness of heart muscle from pvcs or if any more arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia is suspected or seen.

In brief: Not Dangerous

Multiple p.V.C. Are usually asymptomatic and not dangerous.
They need to be treated if they are symptomatic or sustained irregular heart beats called ventricular tachycardia.
