Kidney stones are small pieces of crystallized material made up of mostly calcium, but may contain uric or amino acids. They usually pass out of the body without any problems. When they get stuck in the ureter – the tube connecting the kidney to the bladder – they can cause pain and other debilitating symptoms.
