About Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are an accumulation of crystals in the urinary tract. The crystals are a mass of hardened urinary mineral salts that have separated from urine and have formed in the ureter, which is the tube that connects the kidney in the bladder. Kidney stones may cause urinary or pelvic pain, especially when they are passed into the bladder to exit the body with the urinal stream.
