Hello.......you should get it removed. Smaller can be dissolved with medicines or else doctor do lithotripsy where sound waves are directed to kidney ,it breaks stone into smaller pieces so that it flush out in urine ....if its not possible doctor remove it surgically ... You shouldn't ignore this ... Consult urologist soon.
