Question humming noise from right front wheel

Since quite a time, while driving, I've been hearing a humming noise from (i supose more) right - front side of the car.

Hard to describe, but this is something like ...

wuuum, wuum, wuum ... and as more faster I'm driving, then the frequency is also increasing ...
In my opinion, it is a front wheel bearing.
I've let the car inspected:

Now the conclusions:

Mech said its not the wheel bearing, or cv, or tires, but it could be from the gear transmission, but I'm not sure because gears change smoothly. On the highway the noise gets louder and with a slight vibration. I know it's not the rotors because when comming off the highway there is no vibration in the stearing wheel, anymore since I had them changed.

I would say either tires or bearing.

A wheel bearing will change it's sound when "loaded up" on curves. So, a right front wheel bearing will be VERY noisy on left-hand curves, and quiet on right-hand curves.

Our '99 had a bad LF bearing a few years ago.

Thanks guys I found out it was my tire. I nearly had an accident a few weeks ago on the highway that made me hit the island curb of the on ramp, when zai got to work everything weemed fine. A week late I noticed the sound and figured it was the bearing. The tire had a large blister on the inner part of the wheel. I checked the tire before while it was on the ground and by some fluke that part was on the ground. Well it all fine now thanks for the input.
