M south indian. What is kidney stone and how are they formed? Can taking beer once a month cause kidney stone?

See answer: Kidney stones form for many reasons. Stated simply, stones form when the urine becomes over-saturated with the mineral salts normally present in the urine that can form stones: calcium, oxalate, phosphate, uric acid, etc. Precipitation of these salts is influenced by their concentration, urine volume, and other stone inhibiting/promoting substances.

Husband went to er, have kidney stone. No more pain but not sure if he passed it, if its still inside him can it cause damage? Should he go back 2 drs

Depends: If it was in the ureter, size does matter. Less than about 4mm, most will pass. Greater than 6mm, most will not. 4-6 mm is variable. If pain returns, I would recommend follow up imaging. Usually a kidney stone protocol ct scan is done in this situation. Read more
