Bladder infection: Caused by abnormal bacteria in the bladder, kidney infection, the bacteria is in your kidney- more serious, a kidney stone is not an infection, kidney stone starts in the kidney and can stay there or get trapped in the ureter or bladder sometimes you can pass a small stone, other times will need treatment to remove it or crush it.
