    My guess is the wheel bearing.

    Probably best to get a second opinion from a mechanic.

    Sounds more like the CV joint, especially if it does it when turning.

    Not sure about costs.
    Worst case would be total failure of the joint & this would mean lack of drive to the wheel in question, basically immobilising the vehicle.

    Better sooner, rather than later I'd say.
