What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

Some stones can grow to be very large without causing symptoms. Flank pain is a common symptom of kidney stones. Flank pain occurs on one side of the back near the lower ribs. If stones have passed into the ureter, the person may have groin pain. Pain may also radiate down the lower side of the abdomen. A kidney stone may cause blood in the urine, nausea, and vomiting.
