Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your query I will like to tell you that two possibilities arise . First will be presence of urine infection which needs to be ruled out . You should see a physician get a urine r/ m and c/s done to look for any infection. Other is ruling out any kind of metabolic disorder . like cystinuria etc also leads to smell in urine .so first the cause needs to be established before suggesting you any treatment . Take care.

I recently had a KUB after passing a small stone . I have had one previous attack and was told then that both kidneys have stones. The first attack required lithotrypsy. The KUB shows a 12mm stone overlying the right pole. The same stone measured 9mm, 33 months ago. I read the results online and my doctor and i have been playing phone tag. Im very anxious. Will this require treatment if Im not experiencing pain, infection or other symptoms?
