What is a kidney stone?

Kidney stones are small, solid lumps that form in one or both of the kidneys and can move into other parts of the urinary tract. Large kidney stones can get stuck in the thin tubes (ureters) that connect the kidneys to the bladder. This can cause extreme pain in the side and back below the ribs and near the groin.
