How to change the argument of a function?

I want to define a function that in the course of doing something, also
changes the value of its argument, for example: f[x_]:=Module[{},
x=2*x;
x
]
When I run the function, I get the error: "Set::setraw : Cannot assign
to raw object  ...." Can this be done in some way?
