Ureter and Bladder Stone

The ureter is the tube through which urine travels from the kidneys to the bladder. Ureteral stones are formed from excess mineral deposition in the urine. Usually ureteral stones originate in the kidneys and they get stuck in the ureter when the stone tries to come down along with the urine. Some stones are very small and not visible on conventional imaging but large ones can cause severe pain and obstruction to the flow of urine. These need urgent treatment as it may lead to kidney damage. Bladder stones are similar to kidney stones and are formed by deposition or crystallisation of minerals. Some bladder stones originate in the kidneys and travel down to the bladder to get stuck there while others may be formed de Novo in the bladder itself. This condition can cause various degrees of discomfort and pain while passing urine. Consulting early can prevent further complications.
