In brief: H veins vs. 'rrhoids
Hemorrhoidal veins are normal.
But most people use the term hemorrhoids to indicate they've got problem(s). Some problems wax and wane; others need therapy (topical meds to coagulation, banding or surgery).

Many of my patients have excellent responses to conservative measures such as increasing fiber, drinking more water, and 'taking the library out of the bathroom'.

In brief: 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.
