Moved somewhat: It is known that these stones will hurt when they move. Bleeding will also occur. Can't always tell where it is by the pain. The closer to the bladder, the more likely you will feel it in the groin area or back. The best way to know where it is, is with an X-ray . Hope it passes quickly

Bladder pathology: Would be next to be ruled out through a cystoscopy. Prostate pathology is also common and can cause hematuria even through benign enlargement or BPH.
