About Kidney Stones
Kidney stones are a common condition -- albeit a painful one -- affecting the urinary tract. While the exact cause of kidney stones is still unknown, they form when crystals in urine clump together instead of being passed through the body. Many times, kidney stones will eventually pass through the body without treatment. Common symptoms of the condition include sharp pains in the groin area and blood in the urine.
