Pain in urine while urination, diagnosed with kidney stone of 10mm size is it curable with conventional method or i have to go for surgery
  • By Team TDO

As your kidney stone is larger than 1/2 inch (or 10mm) in diameter it will likely need to be either removed by surgery or by lithotripsy; no need unless and until asymptomatic. Large stones usually remain in the kidney without symptoms, although they may damage the kidney. A complete diagnosis of kidney stones should include blood screens, 24 hour urine samples, provocative calcium loading tests, and stone analysis to determine the type of stone, its underlying cause, and proper treatment, and future stone prevention. Prevention is always the preferable way to treat kidney stones. Remaining well hydrated keeps the urine dilute and helps prevent kidney stones from forming.
