The answer

Stones in the prostate are quite common and usually do not cause any difficulties, but they can grow over time and this can become an issue and may need to be surgically removed if they become large enough to cause difficulty with passing urine, so your son will need monitoring over time by a doctor.

If you have not seen your GP regarding your son’s urine infection we would suggest you do so as soon as possible as he may need antibiotics depending on the type of infection.
