"Not referred when lump discovered"

About: Sentinel Healthcare Southwest Community Interest Company / Referral & Appointment Booking Team

(as the patient),

I discovered a small lump in my groin in July 11. I was told when it becomes larger I would require treatment for hernia.

Could you tell me why I wasn't referred at that time? It is now large and spreading, it would appear on a daily basis. I am concerned.
