I had an abdominal Cat-Scan for GI problems. The Radiology report came back noting that a "Cyst (Hemorrhagic/proteinaceous) or mass" was found on my right kidney. What chances of this being cancerous?

This site is not a medical site so discuss these findings with your renal specialist
all lumps can be benign or cancerous until you get a biopsy done to find out which it is
best advice is don't delay in seeking help from a specialist

How to treat a Cyst?


not really a home DIY thing to treat

The majority of cysts are benign, but a few may contain malignant cells (Cancers )..and need a health professional

if external any size
a doctor can use a sterile syringe and extract the fluid
(needle biopsies.)
which then should have pathology tests
if internal
key hole or open surgery required to remove these depending on size

Low or no power, changed the mass air flow sensor? OBD showed a problem on left side cat converter? Runs good one day and bad the next. Problem started after hurricane. Acts like exhaust is plugged ...


If its showing a catalytic converter code,,dont keep replacing other sensors..Has nothing at all to do with the map or the mass air flow sensor...Likely its the cat is clogged..That code tells you that your cat is not doing its job..I would change that cat on that side,,and quit letting the mechanic throw parts on the car..Thats to expensive

Catalytic converter stopped up. Pipes got red hot. Replaced Cat. Conv. car runs good, then started random misfires, pipes got red hot again. What is exhaust part that is downstream of Cat. Conv. could it...


If the exhaust system was plugged the engine wont run, normally. It will start and idle until the back pressure is such that it can't take in more air/fuel mixture and then stall.

After the converter, there may be a resonator, and then the muffler. Is any exhaust flowing out of the tail pipe? You might try hooking up a scanner and see what your oxygen sensor(s) is/are doing.
Also, scan the MAF(mass air flow) sensor assembly.
Sound like the engine can't breathe, and its getting to much fuel.

The vehicle was put on a diagnostic machine for loss of power and it coded the o2 sensor, and the mass air flow, and EGR valve. We put a new o2 sensor in and cleaned the mass air flow. It ran, but no...


no-- but could mean that the O2 sensor is not correct
it is a common misconception that all of the oxygen sensor are the same
the fact is that even they are known a oxygen sensors there are 2 completely different units
the sensor in the exhaust manifold before the cat converter is in fact a heated oxygen sensor and it's function is to report the exhaust composition so that the ecm can adjust the air/fuel mixture
the other is an o2 sensor located after the cat converter and fine tunes the system after the cat converter has done it's job
if the cat converter is faulty , the o2 sensor will try to have the ECM correct the mixture
the loss of power if it is a cat converter comes from a blocked exhaust system and that is most evident at high rpms or under power

Cat is usually damaged from vehicle misfiring, Those codes you posted are a MAF, idle control, and 02 sensor codes. The MAF sensor could be reading incorectly causing the car to run rich or lean, and giving the 02 sensors bad readings, i would deffinetly look into the MASS Air Flow sensor, which is located on the intake tuping near the airbox

You can also try cleaning it with MAF sensor cleaner

The check light is continously shown ON


Remove the terminal head from the battery if only you run a scan and there seem not to be any issue or code reported.

But I strongly recommend the scan.
