First your father’s age is 65. At this age sudden rise of blood pressure is common.
You mentioned the ultrasound of kidney and lipid profile is normal it indicates the increase of blood pressure is age related. Increased heart size is a danger size.
So, it is not good for health of your father.
Is your father taking any anti hypertensive drug ? If not he needs that.
You should consult with an CARDIOLOGIST for other investigation like ECG, ECHO and a thorough clinical check up.
Thank you.
