Sandor Sarkadi had an abdominal operation after doctors discovered the enormous kidney stone following an X-ray.

Mr Sarkadi was rushed into an operation in the Kenez Gyula Hospital after the X-ray showed a giant lump.

Kidney stones do not normally get much bigger than a golf ball, and even that is usually considered very large.

After a kidney stone forms, it will often pass through the urinary system, but it is fairly common for a stone to block part of the urinary system.

If this happens, you can experience severe pain in your abdomen or groin, while a blockage can also lead to an infection.

As someone who's had a kidney stone, I can vouch for that "severe pain" part of the story.
