When a GP (médico de clínica geral) "refers someone", this is the process of setting up for that patient to be seen by a specialist. In this case, she is saying that the diagnosis of oral cancer would be done by some cancer specialist, to whom she is referring the patient.

Generally in North America, and I guess Britain as well, you cannot go directly to a specialist. You need a referral from a general practitioner. The reason is obvious: there are many medical specialties, and a GP (not the patient or his best friend) is best able to decide which specialty is most appropriate in each case.
