We don't have information for your model, but if you turn right and the noise decreases, it is usually the front right bearing that is suspect. Turning right, as in when changing lanes, reduces the weight on the right bearing and makes it get quieter.
Reduced noise affected by turning is common with pressed-in wheel bearings. Most cars today use bolted-on bearing assemblies. Those don't react to turning as much as the pressed-in type. With the bolted-on style, if you replace the wrong one, you can put the old one on the other side. Pressed-in bearings are usually destroyed by removing them.
If your car has a strut front suspension system, raise the front wheels off the ground, reach over the top of the tire and lightly wrap your fingertips around the coil spring. Rotate the tire with your other hand. If that is the noisy wheel bearing, you'll feel the vibration in the spring.
My preferred method with front-wheel-drive cars is to run them in gear on the hoist, then listen next to each bearing with a stethoscope. One will be seriously louder than the other one.
