Brief Answer: Renal infection,Mass can causes same symptoms. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX You didn't mentioned about symptoms you are suffering from. Kidney stone generally causes pain,hematuria etc. Pain,hematuria also occurs in many other conditions like infection,mass etc. It should be confirmed by clinical examination,imaging and lab investigations. Lab investigations include routine hemogram,Urine RE/ME,Urine culture and sensitivity etc. Imaging modalities are ultrasonography,CT Scan etc. So,you should consult nephrologist. Get well soon Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
