Difference between kidney calcification and stones?
My neph called back today and said that it is a kidney stone in my right kidney. WHAT? The urologist said that he was sure it was NOT a kidney stone. My neph says that it's basically the same thing, just using different words. Gosh, the uro. was very sure it wasn't a stone, and it seems that he would know since that's all he deals with. I know that dr's can disagree on things, but I guess I'm wondering if they mean the same thing, just calling it by different names.
Can someone shed some light on this?
Is there a difference between a kidney calcification and a kidney stone?
