Is my cactus/euphorbia dying?

I’ve just noticed this area on black on one of the tips of my cactus (although I believe from looking online it’s actually a euphorbia). The dried, brown bit top right was there when I bought it over a year ago, but the black bit around it is definitely new. Does it mean that it’s dying? Is there anything I can do to save it? Any help would be appreciated!

    Brown bit on cacti and succulents usually means that it has been overwatered and possibly not in enough light and/or possibly not in the right compost/pot. What are your growing conditions like?
