I have had an 8 size stone in the kidney for over a year that hasn't moved or changed size--exactly the same. Do they usually stay where they're at?

In brief: Depends on location

Depends on many things : location, cause ( etiology), patient habits (water drinking , etc.
.) iif clearly intrarenal ( inside the kidney matter instead of the urinary tract) shgould be ok, it is different if in the pelvis or the ureter.
