Docs, could a large kidney stone sitting in bottom of kidneys cause any problems if left there?

Yes, it can be, but.: Yes, a large may stay there quietly but surely will grow bigger. While it would be probably of no harm to watch it closely for 1-2 yrs, the risk of adding surrounding tissue damage from its increasing size and potentially possible infection will increase; so, for someone at 36, it is too long to watch, so i would recommend to get it out in time and practice stone prevention, and practice... ...Read more
