As the name suggests, the Urine Stone is a little cyst or tumour like growth that happens in the urinary tract and the kidney area. It is also referred to as kidney stone. In most cases the patient would experience a sudden or shooting pain in the lower abdomen, which is accompanied with constant pain during urinating followed with feeling of dizziness and blackout when urinating.
HOW IS URINE STONE DIAGNOSED?
The Urologist will get an Xray done, of the lower abdomen plus ultrasound test to detect the nature and size of the Urine Stone. If the diagnosis is inconclusive, then a CT scan can also be advised to get the complete picture.
HOW IS URINE STONE TREATED?
Treatment largely depends on the size of the stone. There are medications like Thiola and Cuprimine that help in reducing its size, thus making it possible for the stone to break down and flush out. In other cases, surgical removal of the same through laparoscopy is suggested.
