Did You Know?

Bladder stones

Bladder stones are made up mineral deposits in the urine because of high levels of the deposits in the urine. They can be made up of different minerals, the most common being calcium deposits. These stones vary in size and can be asymptomatic until they are detected through diagnostic exams like ultrasounds. If the stones do become symptomatic, it can be because they have affected the function of the bladder or the kidneys – becoming lodged in the urethra or ureters. Typical symptoms include retention and dysuria (painful urination).
