what are the correct steps to deal with a urethral stone?

Multiple options.: Stones in the urinary tract that are small, <5 mm, can be watched to see if it passes on its own (trial of passage). If it is truly a urethral stone (in the urethra rather than the ureter), it is likely to pass on its own. If it is large or obstructing, a cystoscopy can be performed to remove it. A stone in the ureter may require a stent, ureteroscopy, or shock-wave lithotripsy.
