Here are some...: Most likely, the trace-(+) finding of albumin is not clinically significant, i.e., not serious, but annual urinalysis for next 3-5 yrs as follow-ups for comparison is reasonable. As to the kidney stone of 3.4x3.8 mm, you may leave it alone as long as not bothering you since the odd to pass a stone of this size is high. More? Ask treating doc for personal specific counseling timely.
