Passed kidney stone: If the CT showed a stone in the bladder and some mild hydroureter, it shows that there is some mild swelling of the kidney tube. Since most stones in the urinary tract pass from the kidney to the bladder through the ureter, the swelling likely indicates that a stone caused some degree of blockage before getting to the bladder. You may want to see a urologist to get your stone risks evaluated
