    I have grade three microtia- an ear deformity which means my ear looks like it's been folded in, and i have no hearing in this ear. Will this prevent me from becoming a surgeon/doctor because I can't wear a stethoscope??

    tbh I have no idea - my best advice would be to email a few med-schools and see what they say xxx
