In brief: U mean essential ?

I think you mean essential hypertension .
This is high blood pressure that has not been explained by a secondary cause. These secondary causes may be from a blocked arteries to the kidneys or a tumor that secretes hormones that raise the blood pressure etc. As always regardless the cause the goal is good controll . Poor controll of blod pressure can cause damage to heart , brain, eyes , kidneys etc.
