In brief: Renal stones

Renal stones are not normal (or else everyone would have one).
A 1 cm renal stone should be treated. See a urologist for options. Eswl shockwave lithotripsy is the most common procedure.

In brief: Not usually

This size stone tends to increase in size with time increasing the risk that more invasive procedure may be required to manage the stone.
