Noises have to be heard to be sure of a diagnoises. Take it to a a garage.

AnswerI had a similar problem like this, does the noise continue for only a few moments after you turn? My problem was a small exhaust leak. They are had to distinguish though, youre better to take it to a garage.

Both answers are worth considering , however usually when you have a noise turning in one direction it is a front wheel bearing , in this case probably the left hand side as when you turn right it puts extra force to the left side tire , consider it a warning sign and get repaired as soon as possable to avoid damage to brake pads and rotor , you can check this yourself by jacking the car up (allowing the wheel to hang) now try to lift the tire while pushing against the top of the tire should be NO play if you can move the tire the wheel bearing is bad .
