It's probably normal. I see that a lot sometimes. If it's firm to the touch then don't worry about it. If it's soft or oozing then you have rot and it should be cut out. When cutting out rot be sure to get it all.

a soft bruise deep tissue bruise? or a solid, dry, flakey, dark spot, on the outermost skin?

If its the second, its very common, I call em cactus freckles....

if its the first, and its getting softer every day, your cactus maybe doomed, and amputation is neccesary... I really bet its the second, common one. otherwise your thread would have the word "HELP!!" somewhere in it.

its a dark spot on the outermost skin, but doesnt have a very different texture than the actual skin.

If it's firm then don't worry about it.
