I don't see the harm in being tested. If you are worried that the outcome will result in your needing a hearing aid, you can always postpone getting one as long as you feel you are getting by adequately in your daily life without one. I think the ones they have today are so small that you could probably wear one undetected anyway. I guess it's really a personal decision. I always like to know if I have a problem or not. Then I can weigh my options and take it from there, whether or not I need to do something about it to correct it.
