A Kidney Stone is a disease which is highly detected in various age groups of patient round the world. In medical terms, kidney stone is also known as “Renal Calculus”. Kidney stones are a solid concretion or crystal aggregation formed in the kidneys from minerals in the urine. If stones grow to a sufficient size i.e. usually at least 3 millimeters (0.12 in), they can cause blockage of the ureter. This leads to the excessive pain which is mostly found in the flank or lower back. In other terms, we can call this type of pain as Renal Colic and it typically comes in the form of waves inside the body usually lasting for 20 to 60 minutes.
