Can a 6mm kidney stone pass?

Borderline

Kidney
Thus may or may not pass on its own. Drink lots of water & discuss with uirologist use of Tamsulosin to help ureter to dilate & facilitate passage of stone. You may well require professional help if pain is severe &/or makes you vomit.

Can a 6.4 mm kidney stone pass?

Yes.

It is possible to pass a 6.4mm stone. Stone passage is related to stone size and stone location. Stones of this size have an approximately 50% chance of pasing spontaneously. Medication might help. Otherwise, lithotripsy might be necessary. Discuss with your urologist.

Can a 7.5 mm kidney stone be passed?

No

Kidney
This is too large to pass. In general, stones less than 5 mm in size should be given an opportunity to pass. Patients can be advised that stones less than 4 mm in size generally pass within one to two weeks. A 7.5 mm stone should be referred to a urologist for treatment options.
