In brief: Yes

Depends on cause.
There are a few that are curable by surgery! other persons may control or improve, with weight loss, exercize, sodium control, dietary efforts.

In brief: Maybe

If you have lifestyle things you can modify like smoking, drinking, excess weight, lack of exercise or poor diet.
Fixing those can possibsbly lower blood pressure. Routine test will include thyroid function and kidney functions.
