A kidney stone is a solid mass made up of tiny crystals. One or more stones can be in the kidney or ureter at the same time.The main symptom is severe pain that starts suddenly and may go away suddenly.Pain may be felt in the belly area or side of the back
Pain may move to groin area (groin pain) or testicles (testicle pain) Kidney stones are painful but usually can be removed from the body without causing permanent damage. They tend to return, especially if the cause is not found and treated.

There are possible complications of kidney stones. These include:
