Mild chronic pansinusitis?

I recently saw a copy of my sinus CT report, in which the radiologist's conclusion was 'mild chronic pansinusitis'. Everything I have read about chronic sinusitis indicates that treatment is a long course of antibiotics, which I would REALLY like to avoid. Since the report indicates that the disease is 'mild', does it really need treatment with antiobiotics, or could it be left alone? Are there any risks of not treating? I don't have any colored nasal discharge, though I do have a lot of clear drainage, so no obvious signs of bacterial infection.
