In brief: Kidney stones

Ask your doctor is you have any signs of hydronephrosis.
Hydornephrosis is caused by obstruction. If you have this I'd suggest you get this stone taken care of. If you don't have any signs of hydronephrosis there probably isn't any danger waiting a little longer to have this removed. Ask your doctor.
