About the disease

Urethral stones is an accumulation of hard masses that develop in the urinary tract. Small stones rarely cause any symptoms. A person may not know for year that he/she has urethral stones. If the stones are large in size, the person may feel pain and discomfort. Also, having stones increases the risk of developing different infection in the urinary tract. In severe cases urethral stones can cause bleeding and also block the normal flow of urine, which can affect the bladder and kidneys function. People with large urethral stones can feel severe pain in the area between the ribs and the hips.

Most commonly, stones start to develop in the kidneys. These stones can get bigger  in the ureter or the bladder. In some cases stones may appear in the urethra initially. Bladder is also the common site where stones can start developing. According to MSD Manual, only in the USA approximately 1 000 people are diagnosed with urethral stones. This condition is more common among the elderly. It can also develop in middle-aged people. Most commonly urethral stones are very small. In rare cases they can reach 2-3 cm in size, which can be a medical emergency, especially if they create blockage in the urethra.

Overall, stones have the crystal consistency. They are created from the minerals, present in the kidneys and urinary tract. According to MSD Manual, 85% of urethral stones are composed of calcium. Other 15% include different chemicals, also present in the kidneys and urinary tract. Urethral stones can develops if there is excessive amount of salt in the urine. People who eat too much animal protein and who have excessive amount of vitamin C can develop urethral stones throughout their lifetime. People who suffer from dehydration or who lack calcium can develop urethral stones  as well. This condition can also be passed from generation to generation. 

Symptoms

Urethral stones are usually asymptomatic. If they are big in size, they can cause such symptoms:

  • Pain in the pelvic area
  • Pain can radiate to the hips or abdomen
  • Pain can come in waves
  • Pain when urinating
  • Blood in the urine in some cases
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Dark or cloudy urine

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination the doctor will examine the ureteral tract of the patient. The doctor will ask about the symptoms above and will palpate the pelvic and abdominal area to determine the exact cause of pain.
  • An urinalysis is used to determine if there is an infection in the urine, blood or some harmful chemicals which can be indicators of stones.
  • A CT scan, X-ray or ultrasound are imaging tests used to examine the ureteral tract and determine the exact location of the stones, their size and also amount. Usually, kidneys, bladder and urethra are all checked to determine the location of stones.

Treatment

  • Ureteroscopic removal is a procedure used to remove the stones from the urethra.
  • Percutaneous lithotripsy is a procedure which uses shock waves to break the stones and thus remove them from the body.
