Question: From last couple of days, I am feeling slight tingling kind of feeling on the left side of the "base" of the penis and around the same area where pubic hairs are located. Its not a serious pain, just a small sensation. I feel it more before I have to go to urinate. After finishing urination, its less. What can be the cause of this? is it some vein or ligament?

Brief Answer:
Veins and ligaments don't cause sensation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i can understand your concern.
Veins don't cause any sensation.
Ligaments don't exist at base of penis to support it.
Your feeling of tingling is mainly psychological.
If you have a bothersome feeling, that's persisting, you should get it examined.
If you're a diabetic, it's best to check your blood sugar(fasting).
Hope your doubt's cleared.
Take care.
