Bladder Stone Symptoms

Some common bladder stone symptoms include:

Bladder stones are more common in men, but can occur in women as well.

Bladder Stone Causes

Bladder stones are typically formed when the bladder fails to completely empty. This leads to the buildup of certain minerals and substances that lead to the formation of a calculus, or stone. Bladder function can be reduced for many reasons, including other health problems.

Bladder stone causes include:

If left untreated, bladder stones can cause immense pain and lead to health problems such as urinary tract infections and chronic bladder dysfunction.

Bladder Stone Treatment

Bladder stone treatment typically begins with tests to determine if a stone is present in the bladder. This can include:

Sometimes asymptomatic bladder stones are discovered when these tests are performed for a different reason. If a bladder stone is found, there are two primary treatment options: breaking the stone in to smaller pieces and removing it through surgery.

  • Bladder stones are most often broken apart through a procedure known cystolitholapaxy. During this procedure, a small tube (or scope) is inserted throught the urethra. Then after the bladder stone is located, lasers, ultrasound or other techniques are used to break it apart, allowing the stone to be passed out of the body safely during normal urination.
  • Bladder stone surgery is typically reserved only for large or particularly hard stones. During this surgery, an incision is made in to the bladder and the stone is removed whole.
