Kidney Stones

Kidney stones form when the concentration of certain crystals in the urine is too high. As the crystals stick to each other, stones form and then grow within the kidney. Stones usually do not cause pain unless they are causing blockage of the urinary tract, often within the ureter, which is the tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder.
