What Is a Kidney Stone?
Kidney stones are solid, pebble-like masses that develop in the urinary tract from salt and minerals that have clumped together in the urine. The process, called urolithiasis, can result in either a small stone that is easily passed during urination or a larger stone that can block a ureter (one of two tubes which propel urine from the kidney).
