How long does HPV last, and will you have it for the rest of your life?
Paul's answer has given you the basic facts about HPV from the CDC. I am not a doctor and can't diagnose youl however, there are now some vaccines available, but there is no cure, per se, other than the body's immune system working to clear the virus. However, there is no way to know how quickly your body will deal with HPV.
It has been a while since you posted, but I hope all is well with you. Here are some additional links that be of use to you:

Here is a Genital HPV Infection fact sheet from the CDC.
And here is a fact sheet specifically for men from the CDC.
These should answer your questions.
Here is an excerpt from the first fact sheet:
"Most people with HPV do not develop symptoms or health problems from it. In 90% of cases, the body’s immune system clears HPV naturally within two years.
The types of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the same as the types that can cause cancer. There is no way to know which people who get HPV will go on to develop cancer or other health problems."
