ratings and reviews)
Urine Stone or kidney stone is a condition in which tiny crystals, usually comprising minerals, tend to accumulate in the kidney and form a stone. In the normal process these crystals are supposed to travel with the urine and get excreted. Sudden and sever pain in the lower back where the kidneys are located could be the first symptoms of the condition. The pain could change positions if the stone travels to the tube and urinating may be painful or it may be difficult to pass urine if the stone has blocked the passage.
HOW IS URINE STONE DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis is done through an ultrasound or scan to check the size of the stone and its location.
HOW IS URINE STONE TREATED?
Most kidney stones won't require invasive treatment. Kidney stones that can't be treated with conservative measures may require more extensive treatment. Procedures may include:
• Using sound waves to break up stones.
• Surgery to remove very large stones in the kidney.
• Using a scope to remove stones.
• Parathyroid gland surgery.
