Dear sir , my wife had recently undergone ultra sound whose report says " Right kidney shows an echogenic shadow measuring 8 mm". We are expecting it to be kidney stone . she has minor headaches during the day time . and also have some breathing problems. Can we be assured that its a stone only ??? can it be removed without surgery ???

Hi.... Most stones that cause renal colic are small and pass out with the urine in a day or so. You should drink plenty of fluids to encourage a good flow of urine. Strong painkillers are often needed to ease the painuntil you pass the stone. No other treatment is usually needed.
Some stones that form and stick in the kidney do not cause symptoms or any harm. They can just be left if they are small.
