May be uti: White blood cells in the urine (and uti) is unusual in the male. The stone is a possible factor in getting urine infection. Prostate infection is also possible. Flank pains and fever would suggest kidney infection. Bladder symptoms suggest problems at that level. The urethra can also be the source of white cells in conditions like gonorrhea or chlamydia. They are all treatable, whichever it is.

See below: Are you having any symptoms? Pain in urination? Back pain? Chills? Are there nitrites in the urine? How big is the kidney stone? Is there enlargement of the kidney as effect of stone? These are the things that need to be considered if treatment is necessary, std will need specific tests, not just clinical symptoms. Get tested if you are worried about this. Good luck.
