Testing words here y stone is a hard mass that forms in the kidneys from minerals in the urine, and if large enough, can cause severe pain. In the United States, kidney stones send more than 300,000 people to the emergency room each year, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Kidney stone isn't actually made of stone. But if you have to pass one when you pee, it may feel like it is.

Kidney stones are small, usually between the size of a kernel of corn and a grain of salt. When your body has too much of certain minerals, and at the same time doesn't have enough liquid, these pebble-like objects can form.

The stones can be brown or yellow, and smooth or rough. Both men and women can get kidney stones, but men's chances of getting them are about double that of women's.
