Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Stones can be found in any part of the urinary tract such as the kidneys, ureter (leads from the kidney to the bladder), the bladder and the urethra.

The symptoms of kidney stones are: (1) pain in the lower back or abdomen, this pain is usually severe and cramping in nature. In some persons the pain may go from the loins to the groins

(2)blood in the urine

(3)pain on urination

(4)in some cases there can be nausea and vomiting

If the stones are small then they may pass on their own with copious fluid intake.

Larger stones may require additional therapies such lithotripsy which is therapy to crush the stone into smaller pieces.

The size can be determined by ultrasound.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of kidney stones then you should consider visiting your doctor.
