It's isn't cactus, it's an Euphorbia. Don't remember the species name right now, but I'm sure someone knows it. This is a very common houseplant here.

One thing that I do not understand is that this plant has thorns and flesh like a cactus.Could it still be a Euphorbia?

If those are little leaves I see, then it is most likely an African Milk Tree.

Welcome home. I found several pictures claiming to be Cereus hexagonus, of which one looks just like your plant. If it is a Nightblooming Cereus, then it should get beautiful, large, white flowers which last only one night. Good luck.
