Default Help Wheel Bearing

Hello guys, I think this may be my wheel bearing but heres the story. I was coming home from school last night on the highway and I made a hard right from highway 41 to highway 172 in Green Bay WI. Ever since then when I turn right my car makes a loud humming sound. When Im driving straight or turn left it doesnt make the sound at all from what I can hear. If I swerve back and forth at 30 mph it is even noticeable then. Please let me know what you guys think. Thanks in advance.

Should post this in the steering/suspension/brakes section.

But yes it does sound like a wheel bearing. Any vibration? Noisy or clunking on slow cornering?
