Hi Darrien
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
The report mentions that you have a kidney stone in your left kidney.The other parts of kidney are fine.If you have symptoms like pain , burning micturition I would advise you to visit your Urologist / Physician and get treatment for the same.You may need to take a course of antibiotics with plenty of water.
If you have no symptoms , You can have 5- 6 liters of water per day and the stone small in size , will pass out in urine.

Take care.

Welcome to Healthcaremagic,

Your stone is very small and unlikely to cause any trouble to yourself. you sholud stop worrying about it, drink planty of water and get serum calcium and uric acid done.

Good Day
Usually calculus indicates a renal stone. Since the stone is of 1mm, it may vanish with proper medical therapy, depending on the type of stone. Drink plenty of water. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink Potrate syrup 2 tsp 3 times a day to help prevent any urinary infection.
