I have a 14mm renal calculus without hydnephrosis. Is this something that can pass on its own?

In brief: Difficult to guess

Renal calculus, or kidney stones, are typically treated with regards to their size, location, composition, and complications.
Any stone over 10 mm is considered large and unlikely to pass on its own. These stones are usually treated with an intervention by a Urologist to help safely remove the stone and avoid associated complications. The specific approach should be decided between you and your MD
