I have a 5mm kidney stone. I'd like to know when, during elimination, will it be the most painful? Ureteter, bladder or urethra? I'm a male.

Here are some...: If a 5-mm stone is inside kidney and not moving, you unlikely have pain. A stone of such size poses low odd for spontaneous passage, prior stone passage will help decide if worthwhile to act or wait.
