Kidney stones are hard and small mineral deposits that form inside the kidneys. The stones are commonly made of acid salts and minerals. They have many causes and can affect any part of the urinary tract– from the kidneys to t he bladder. Stones often form when urine becomes concentrated, allowing minerals to crystallize and stick together. When kidney stones are large or more than one, they can block the flow of urine.

Kidney stones commonly have no specific, definite, or sign cause, though several factors may increase the risk. They usually form when urine contains excess crystal-forming substances, such as oxalate, calcium, and uric acid, than the fluid urine can dilute.
Also, urine may lack substances preventing crystals from sticking together and creating ideal environment for the formation of kidney stones.
