Is this an old problem ie. known in your medical history, or are you having acute flank pain/blood in your urine/ difficulty urinating / fevers right now? If the latter, go and see a urologist- you may need a lithotripsy (shock waves to break up stones in the kidney) or other procedure.

The most deciding factor for stone passage is stone size. Generally speaking, a stone of 4 mm. So, ask Doc timely to decide when, what, and how to wait and manage a symptomatic stone.
