Hi thanks for your kidney.
Though the size of stone is not too big that it cannot pass of its own but chances that it will pass of itself are less since it is embaded in kidney tissue.If not removed it can increase in size and can damage the kidney.Don't worry this stone what you call it as time bomb can be removed and you don't have to live with it.Consult a urologist who may be able to remove it laproscopically.
Hope this answers your question.
