Do varicose veins disappear?

Last year I got painful lumps in my legs, went to the docs, he squeezed one and said it was varicose veins starting.  (I had a hip operation beginning of the year) Anyhow from about November they started going and they haven't come back yet. So my question is, do I have varicose veins and if not what were they?
