Hypertension and nose bleeds

My friend keeps getting them and I have urged her to go back to see her Gp. What can I say to explain why this is happening and what could happen if she doesn;t get seen by GP

Does she have a pre-existing diagnosis of hypertension? Even if she does the nose bleeds may well be coincidental. Most patients with nose bleeds don't have high blood pressure. I do agree either way that a simple check of her BP is still reasonable.
