What are bladder stones?

A Answers (1)

  • Cystine Stone in Urinary Bladder
    Bladder 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.
