Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Small stones e.g less than 5 mm can pass spontaneously by taking adequate fluids and straining urine. If the stone size is between 5 and 10 mm then the chances are less for the stone to pass. An X ray KUB and ultrasound abdomen pelvis or a CT KUB can be advised to know the exact size and position of the stone. Greater than 10 mm size would most likely require Lithotripsy or Ureteral removal of stone.

Let me know if you have any query

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
