What to do with this cactus?

I have a tall cactus approximately 7 feet tall. Recently it has begun to grow a new large head on the top of the cactus. The thickness of the new piece seems to not be growing proportionate to the rest of the cactus.

Due to the height of the cactus I am afraid if this new piece keeps growing in width it may tip the cactus over

Is there any way to cut the top of the cactus off and re plant it?

Would that be more harmful than good to the existing cactus?

Any ideas how to do this?

Appreciate any suggestions !! 😊
