I have a 3mm kidney stone just found by ultra sound. I do not have any back pain but I do have groin pain on the right side. How long to pass a stone?

In brief: Position

It all depends on the position of the stone.
Given that you had an ultrasound exam i suspect the stone was found in a nonobstructing position in your kidney. These stones (at the size you mentioned especially) are rarely painful when located in the kidney. Ct scan would likely be necessary to determine if a stone is present in the ureter.
