Kidney removed after two years!

In 2014 I saw my Dr as I believed I had a hernia in the left of my abdomen . I was told it was ok and my abdominal wall was strong and was keeping it in place.  No offer of a scan nothing. I went back in 2015 to be told the same thin even though it had grown and was uncomfortable.  Finally after moving areas I went back in 2016 they sent me for an ultra sound which confirmed it wasn't hernia.  Booked in for emergency ct which showed it to be a tumour which was now more than 90% of my left kidney. I 2as booked in as an emergency to have a radical open nephrectomy.  Tests showed I had a rare kidney cancer I now need regular scans and genetic screening. Was this negligence?  And if it had been caught sooner would I have been able to have keyhole instead I'm left with a 10 inch scar over my abdomen and have lost all feeling in my groin and upper thigh
