    Hello Everyone, can an Hypertrophic scar on your face prevent you from joining the royal marines?

    @Marvin225 Short answer is NO - with as long as it is not so prominent / raised that it interferes with function in any way - Eyes / Speech being the main ones - it should not be an issue. It may make you Temporarily unfit for it,s history to be looked at, depending on how keen the Dr is or their familiarity with them.

    Oh wow... that's great to know. @The guide, thanks for your response. The scar does not interfere with function in any way. I am glad that it will not be a problem.
