Can you help me calculate the mass of the solid bounded by the surfaces $x^2+y^2=2y$ and $z=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}$ given its density function $m(x,y,z)=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}$ ?

The solid isn't well defined. The surface $x^2+y^2=2y$ is a cylinder and the surface $z=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}$ is the "upper" half of the double cone $z^2=x^2+y^2$. These two surfaces does not enclose a solid. (See figure)
Attachment:

On the other hand, the double cone $z^2=x^2+y^2$ and the cylinder $x^2+y^2=2y$ enclose a solid. Maybe this is the case...

Is there a general rule to solve this kind of problems, given two surfaces that bound a solid and its density function ?

Yes, there is a general formula to calculate the mass of a solid $S$ with given density function $f:S\subset\mathbb{R}^3\longrightarrow\mathbb{R}$ :
$\displaystyle\mathop{\iiint}\limits_{S}{f\, dS}\,.$
