Can I use the itemized form when my medical expense is more than the standard deduction?

my medical expense is $55322, subtract the 7.5% of AGI, and I will have $46000, which is much higher than the standard deduction of $30700.  why does the 1040 line 12 still select the standard deduction?

the only limitation is if you are married and filing separately. in that case both must ue the standard deduction or both must itemize.
