Urological stone disease
Urinary Stone Disease is a urological condition where stones/calcification develop within the urinary tract. This is also known as nephrocalcinosis, urolithiasis, or kidney stones. Kidney stones are usually found in the kidneys or in the ureter, the tube that connects the kidneys to your bladder. They can be extremely painful and can lead to kidney infections or the kidney not working properly if left untreated.
If your kidney stones are too big to be passed naturally, they're usually removed by surgery. You can find out more about treatment on the NHS website.
