Re-tiling bathroom shower

Hello all!

I am new to this forum so I would like to say hello to everybody! My wife and I recently bought a home, and now notice a crack in one piece of tile and some discolored grout in the tap/wall corner of the shower. The cracked tile has a piece that has come loose and is letting water in. My question is, do we have to take down all the tiles on that wall, or can the old one be removed, and replaced. Also, will I have to remove all grout seams on that wall, to apply a fresh solid seam? Any, all info would greatly be appreciated! One more, is grout normally put in the corners of a tiled shower wall? Isnt that for caulking only? I have a picture of it but is too big for this forum.

Hi Darryl, welcome.

Just the corner? If so, it's just a matter of cutting out the caulk and re-sealing with a quality caulk.
