Is it possible to replace USB port? (Not charging)

My Nexus 5 will no longer charge using the USB port unless I put pressure on the connection between the cord and phone. I have tried multiple cords so I know that is not the problem. I do have a wireless charger so I can still use the phone, but that charger is at home so charging when I am not home is out of the question.

Is it possible to fix or replace the USB port on the phone so it can still be charged?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Before replacing the usb port, I'd recommend to clean it, e.g. with a needle. This helped to solve this problem for me.
