Cucumber trunk is brown.

My cucumbers are coming in great, have gotten 4 off and they are delicious. I am getting concerned though as 1 of the vines is brown at the base. Anyone have any clue what this is? The vine on the right is brown, had some yellow leaves too. Vine on the left is growing great. Reason for concern?

Hi! Welcome to the forum!

Looks like squash vine borer damage to me.
