Benign hypertension

This type of hypertension has no clearly identifiable cause, but is thought to be linked to genetics, poor diet, lack of exercise and obesity. Most people won’t notice any symptoms of essential hypertension. They usually discover that their blood pressure is high during a regular medical checkup.

Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. Each time the heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries and presses against the artery walls. High blood pressure occurs when the walls of the arteries exert a stronger oppositional force, which requires the heart to work harder in order to move blood through the body. This results in an increase in the pressure of blood in the arteries.

Benign hypertension that runs a relatively long and symptomless course, as many as 90% to 95% of all cases of hypertension are benign (primary or essential hypertension). The remaining cases of hypertension are secondary hypertension. Secondary hypertension is high blood pressure that has an identifiable cause, such as kidney disease.
