yes, it may go away but you need to pass it down into your bladder which can be very painful. However, treatment depends on the size of the stone - most people only find out they have a kidney stone when they pass it. If the stone is small, then it is unlikely to cause much pain and it can be observed. You need to discuss this with your GP or urologist
