Kidney and Ureteral Stones

Kid­ney and ureter­al stones form when urine becomes too con­cen­trat­ed, caus­ing salts and min­er­als to build up in your kid­neys and form hard deposits.

Com­mon stone symp­toms may appear sud­den­ly and include:

  • Sharp, cramp­ing pain in the back, side, or low­er abdomen
  • Blood in your urine
  • Painful uri­na­tion
  • Increased urgency to urinate
  • Nau­sea and/​or vomiting

If you sus­pect you have devel­oped a stone, our Imme­di­ate Care Cen­ters, led by board-cer­ti­fied Emer­gency Med­i­cine physi­cians, are avail­able to pro­vide care for you today.
