Hi 5 mm stone in lower part of the kidney usually does not cause pain unless it drops into the ureter- the tube draining urine from kidney to bladder.
I presume the diagnosis is based on a CT scan of the kidneys and bladder and not based on ultrasound alone. If not then I would advice you to get a CT scan of kidneys and bladder. Ultrasound is not good for diagnosing stones in the ureter.
If the stone in ureter is confirmed on CT scan and if your son is still in pain then the only treatment is do to surgery to remove the stone. If the stone in ureter is small then he can be treated by a combination of pain killers called NSAID(diclofenac, ibuprofen, Naproxen etc) and tamsulosin.
