Trauma: Sometimes facial/ocular trauma such as playing sports can cause the vitreous to liquefy at an earlier age. A careful dilated examination must be done as a baseline to insure that there is no silent retinal pathology that can cause loss of vision or even blindness.

Yes: Typical they will clear or the symptoms will dissipate with time. If not you can consider surgery called a vitrectomy. Discuss this option with your eye specialist / retina surgeon.
