Hypertension in Young needs to be evaluated to rule out secondary causes such as kidney related issues, thyroid, endocrinal causes,  Arteritis etc so on and so forth.
But nowadays even in Young Essential hypertension (without any obvious cause) is being seen.
He will need proper thorough evaluation for his hypertension to rule out secondary causes
