To affect one's hearing, there would have to be something wrong with the inner ear. Hearing comes from sound waves that are funneled through the ear to the tympanic membrane. The tympanic membrane vibrates, which intern vibrates the bones of the inner ear, which connect to a complex component called the cochlea. It is here that vibration is translated into information that the brain can understand as a specific sound. A bump outside of the ear does not affect the inside of the ear, unless that bump is just the tip of a really big iceberg that extends to the center of the ear canal. This is not a likely scenario.

What is the Politically correct way of saying deaf?

Deaf. Deaf just describes a quality about the person. But "hearing impaired," while it may sound nicer to some, actually implies that the person has something wrong with them. Plus "impaired" sounds a bit like someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. As for the "hard of hearing," that or "people with hearing loss" are the preferred terms. Saying "deaf and hard of hearing people" is good for speaking more collectively about both groups.
