In brief: Imaging studies
Either x-rays ( ct scan or kub ) or an ultrasound can show stones.

In brief: Kidney stones
Kidney stones can be asymptomatic.
Blood in the urine, flank pain, urinary hesitancy or groin pain can be signs of kidney stones.

In brief: Pain, lots of it.
Usually kidney stones are pretty painful.
You'll get one-sided flank pain that comes in waves. Also nausea. The pain can move into your belly and down your abdomen. You might notice your urine is a different color - brown or red. That's from the blood caused by the irritation of the stone. If you think you might have one, you should see your family doctor. Good luck! drink lots of fluids!
