Hello, Its remarkable to enjoy such a quality of testesterone at this age. However, Masturbation cannot cause hypertension but it  cause a slight increase in blood pressure after ejaculation in all healthy, normal individuals. When you masturbate or have sex, your adrenal gland discharges epinephrine and norepinephrine hormones ,cause a rise in blood pressure and raised heart rate. Blood pressure is elevated when you reach your sexual orgasm. So,if, your blood pressure is controlled, you are safe but high risked hypertension might risk you. TK, CARE.
