Is poignant feeling in the penis shaft near the tip caused by kidney stone that move to the bladder? How long does it take to come out?

Yes: It is probably still in the ureter near the entrance to the bladder. This is the trigone and the nerves that make you feel like you have to urinate are triggered when a stone is trying to pass into the bladder.

I have concretion (sand like particles) not kidney stone, can it cause pain in the back, side, hip, urinary blader and penis area? How long it heals up

I have concretion (sand like particles) not kidney stone, can it cause pain in the back, side, hip, urinary blader and penis area? How long it heals up

Yes: "stones" in the kidney are not usually the large "staghorn" type people think of. You usually have to use a strainer or tea bag to filter your urine in order to capture the "stones." therefore, you certainly may have kidney stones. Until they pass, the pain may be there. There are other things which may cause pain in addition to stones, so make sure that is what you have.

Uti/ kidney stones: Kidney stones can definitely cause UTI's and life threatening kidney infections. They can also cause, when fragments are excreted, urethritis or inflammation of the urethral mucosa that may cause symptoms as described. Abdominal pain, persistence of symptoms, fever, nausea/ vomiting among others, would be alarm signs for a possible evolving infection.

Sharp pain in penis, I have kidney stone 5.7mm.

Stone moving: If given an rx to enlarge ureters/urethra--be sure you are taking it. Use your pain med, hydrate well to encourage passage. If made it to bladder, should pass on own (and will only appear as grain of sand, despite amount of pain it caused on way out). May have some urinary bleeding, ok as long as stops after few hrs. If severe pain / vomiting / can't pee -- go to er.

Fluids and pain meds: You need to drink plenty of fluids and take medication for the pain. If you don't have any reason not to take it, I would suggest taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) as directed on the bottle and if needed Aleve as directed on the bottle. If you are still having pain tomorrow, then you need to go to your emergency room for an evaluation or sooner if you are not able to urinate.

Unclear: You may be passing the stones or stone fragments through the penis. Alternatively you could have a urinary tract infection. Does it hurt when you urinate? If you have a urinary tract infection and "blocking" stones, this could be an emergency. Best to consult your urologist. If you get a fever >100.4 f, go directly to emergency room.

Was told I have kidney stone in kidney. What size can pass through penis?

Was told I have kidney stone in kidney. What size can pass through penis?

Moderate: Basically anything that can get down the ureter into the bladder, can easily pass through the penis tubes (urethra). If your stones are in the kidney, they may be in the pelvis of the kidney and can be quite large. A piece of this could break off and cause the famous, painfull kidney stone passage through the ureters. You should be evaluated by a urologist for kidney stones before this happens.

Hi I just passed a kidney stone on Friday my first one my tip of my penis is numb this normal?

Not unusual: Unusual sensations (pain, tingling, numbness) in head of penis, often accompanied by a feeling of urinary urgency or burning, are quite common as a stone is passing through the lower part of the urinary tract from the opening of the ureter into the bladder and out through the urethra related to irritation and inflammation. These sensations usually resolve within 24-48 hrs after stone passage.

No: If the stone is moving between your bladder and penis through the urethra, medications will not be helpful in passing the stone more quickly. Plenty of fluids and pain medicine. Hang in there you are almost done.

Had stent removed 4 days ago after kidney stone. Everything is great except a mild pinching sensation periodically in my penis. Is this normal?

Here are some...: What you've felt with stent in place is normal and lucky because of being bearable. In fact, some patients just can not tolerate stent-related symptoms. Besides, a properly selected length of stent to suit the ureter help ease stent-related symptoms. So, your urologist might have done good job for you. Best...
