hearing problem

Hello List,

During this last year my hearing has worsened. My specific symptoms are:

1. I confuse certain consonants. I think I have trouble with "onset time"

2. I have trouble listening to speech in a noisy (not very) background.

What test(s) can I ask to be done for 1 and for 2.?
Should these be done by a MD or by an audiologist ?
Can a hearing aid help to correct my problem ?
Which is best (a) behind the ear
                    (b) in the pinna
                    (c) in the auditory meatus

Manny, manny thanks,
