Kidney stones are solid, rock-like deposits that form inside of the kidneys. The kidneys are a pair of organs that make urine. A kidney stone may form in a kidney and move into other parts of the urinary tract, including the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder (ureters), the bladder, and the tube that carries urine out of the body (urethra). As the stone moves through these areas, it can cause intense pain and block the flow of urine.
Kidney stones are created when high levels of certain minerals are found in the urine. The stones are usually passed out of the body through urination, but in some cases, medical treatment may be needed to remove them.
