In brief: Untreated

If you mean an untreated inguinal (groin) hernia.
Complications of a hernia can be pain, hernia enlargement, low risks of bowel obstruction, hernia incarceration or strangulation resulting in dead bowel... Most inguinal hernias do not get complications.

In brief: Pain, obstruction

it can cause pain, swelling, bulge in the area, if bowel are entrapped in it,
it can cause bowel blockage or even rupture of bowels in some cases.
If it is hurting it should be assessed sooner.
