Is it possible to have a kidney stone stuck around my prostate on the way out but with ni pain? Or even a tiny stone will cause pain?

Is it possible to have a kidney stone stuck around my prostate on the way out but with ni pain? Or even a tiny stone will cause pain?

If the stone is not: Causing continued blockage of the ureter and kidney and is just in the bladder then you wouldn't have pain. If the kidney and ureter remain chronically obstructed the kidney will stop excreting urine and pressure in the system will drop and pain fade. Long term obstruction will degrade future kidney function the distinction is important. ...Read more

I’ve had unpredictable, infrequent, & intense episodes of pain around epididymis >10 yrs. Prostate, STI/UTI, & kidney stones OK. How can I find cause?

Epididymus: The epididymus doesn't like to be messed with and once it has been inflamed, chronic discomfort there for years is not unusual in my experience. I assume that you have had ultrasound examination of the testicles as part of your evaluation. If you still have concerns, a urologist is best qualified to evaluate, advise and treat you. ...Read more

Could having kidney stones be related to prostate problems?

Hi my bf has nothing wrong in tests but in tomography prostate stone exists. Can it be the reason for discomfort and pain in that area?

Not related with Sx: Clinical observation over decades had confirmed that prostate stones as shown in x-ray, tomograhy, CT, MRI, and US, are common, harmless, and not related with local discomfort or prostate cancer. So, there is no reason to worry about it and, of course, leave them alone, ...Read more

My boyfriend had stones removed from his prostate about 2 weeks ago he has dark urine and pain while jaculating although no sperm what could it be?

Unclear: I am unclear on what was actually done and why. Prostatic calcification don't usually require any treatment. Hopefully he did not have a transurethral resection of the prostate for this. If he did, this would explain the ejaculation issues. Discuss the procedure, it's indications and expected recovery with the operating urologist. ...Read more

Uroflo came back at 10 but close to empty. Should I be worried about bladder/prostate cancer? Had kidney stone removed 15 yrs ago. Dr thinks stricture

Uroflow: The uroflow does not provide any information regarding cancer of any kind. It would be very unusual for a 35 year old to have either of those malignancies. The flow rate is dependent upon the volume of urine in your bladder prior to voiding and 10 cc/sec may very well be normal. ...Read more

May Have Infection: You may have an infection in your bladder or maybe some of the stone material is still in bladder. You need to see your doctor and be checked. Meanwhile I recommend you drink 6 oz. Cranberry juice and over one quart of water per day. Good idea to take magnesium citrate or magnesium malate once daily as it helps prevents stones.
