Kidney stone

I had x-rays showing I had a small kidney stone proximately 2 mm in my upper left kidney. I had some signs of blood in my urine now are four months down the road and every once in a while, I will still show blood in my urine and I don’t know if I’ve ever passed the stone. My question is if a stone is forming, but not moving can it cause blood in urine?

Yes I think it could due to minor tearing of soft tissue. At least you have found the stone. You can take drinks and that help dissolve renal calculi. Pharmaceutical and also natural such as Apple cider vinegar one teaspoon per day max. Tamsulosin can also help pass stones.
