Kidney stones are deposits of mineral and salt that occur inside the kidneys, predominantly made up of calcium oxalate and numerous other compounds. The symptoms include intense pain in the side and groin, nausea, vomiting, and blood in urine among others. If preventive measures are not taken, there are high chances of recurrence. Imaging techniques like CT scan and ultrasound scan are used for diagnosing kidney stones. The management of symptoms is the primary focus of kidney stone treatment. Sound waves are used to break kidney stones larger than 10 millimeters while smaller ones are flushed out through urine. Surgery and Endoscopy are other techniques to remove bigger kidney stones.
