This is indicative of a bad wheel bearing. Generally the bad bearing gets louder as you turn the wheel in the opposite direction. If you turn left, the load of the vehicle is weighted toward the right side of the vehicle, causing more of a load on the right front bearing, causing it to be noisy if it is bad.
Your symptom is opposite of this, but there is a possibility the LF is still bad, diagnosing wheel bearings can be weird like this.
