Does plaque stay in your arteries forever after it sticks to the walls or does it start to break off over time?

I was just wondering.

    When the plaque is formed in the artery, the usual development of the plaque is just to grow bigger. Because its firmly attached to the wall, and lipids and blood cloths are only sticking to it.
    Some medications and natural drugs are helping to reduce the plaques, but its less probable that the plaque will reduce by itself.

    if it breaks off, then that is a clot, and it will kill you.

    Some people have a propensity to develop plaque build-up more so than others.. People think the plaque is only in your heart – its not.. Its all over and covering every vein in your body and more so in certain veins. Plaque is necessary and is healthy and needed for human function. Plaque breaking off and clogging is debatable.
