Kidney stones – Definition
Kidney stones are pieces of a stone or crystal-like material in the urine. These stones form inside the kidneys or other parts of the urinary tract. The kidneys remove waste (in the form of urine) from the body. They also balance the water and electrolyte content in the blood by filtering salt and water.
