Hello doctor, my friend has 6mm kidney stone in the ureter. It has come out of the kidney and is situated in upper section of ureter. Can this be passed naturally or treatment like lithotripsy or ureteroscopy is needed ? Can any medicine be taken to pass it naturally ?

Hello there.... 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.
