Can you explain what hemorrhoids are?

Yes: They are normal structures that fill with blood when abdominal and pelvic pressure increases, serving as vascular cushions or shock absorbers to cushion the passage of stool. Excessive chronic straining is what generally causes them to become symptomatic.

A lifetime: Hemorrhoids are normal veins and serve as vascular cushions or shock absorbers. If you treat them properly they should last a lifetime and not require removal or treatment.

Straining to have BM: When the stool is small it requires more effort to pass. This bearing down effort to move stool is what causes the dilation of the hemorroidal veins. With chrnoic straiingn during bowel movement the veins get weaker and weaker and dilate more. A high fiber diet makes large soft stools that are easy to pass and hemorroids less likely to form.
