Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answeredBladder stones occur when the minerals in your urine clump together to form crystals and then stones. Bladder stones are most likely to develop when urine becomes concentrated, perhaps due to frequent urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate, or damage to the nervous system. Symptoms of bladder stones include blood in the urine and pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen. Some bladder stones may be small enough to pass, while others may need to be removed surgically.
Bladder stones are hard mineral buildups that form in the bladder. Usually they are a result of a urological problem such as a urinary tract infection or an enlarged prostate. Bladder stones occur when urine is concentrated and minerals crystallize and clump together.
Bladder stones may block the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body (urethra). This may cause trouble urinating, painful urination, or complete inability to urinate.
