humming noise...rear passenger side. only when turning

What could cause this......on a straight line theres no noise. as soon as i turn the car at low speeds the humming starts. When i straighten it out....it goes away

Diff is full. It only happens when i turn even slightly left and full left turn. But the sound is coming from the right rear. Could be a wheel bearing, funny noises are usually hard to diagnose until it gets so bad its obvious
