Kidney stones are “hard deposits made of minerals and salts that form inside your kidneys”. They form either due to genetics, diet or environmental factors. The stones are usually small enough to pass with urine. However, if it grows bigger and becomes stuck in the urinary tract and causes complications, surgery is often needed to remove it.
