One million Americans are treated for kidney stones each year, according to the National Kidney Foundation. Kidney stones are most common among men between the ages of 20 and 40.
Symptoms can include severe pain in the groin, kidneys or abdomen, nausea, fever and blocked urine flow. Most kidney stones pass on their own within three to six weeks.
