FAQs about Stone Disease

I have been passing small stones – should I see the doctor?

If you are passing multiple small stones it is possible that you have a larger problem. For one you might have a tendency to form stones that can be treated. Also you could have obstruction of parts of the urinary system. Obstruction that arises slowly is not always painful. Go see your urologist; make sure nothing worse is going on. If you don’t understand the underlying cause or don’t know the extent of the problem, you could do yourself harm.
