Kidney Stones

On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Mitchell Humphreys, a Mayo Clinic urologist, discusses the painful problem of kidney stones.

Kidney stones (renal lithiasis, nephrolithiasis) are hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys.
Kidney stones have many causes and can affect any part of your urinary tract — from your kidneys to your bladder.

Often, stones form when the urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together.
