Cancer Discovered in Hydra?

It has recently been reported here and here that scientists at Kiel University in Germany claim that cancer has been found in Hydra.

Anyone familiar with my published theory knows it asserts that lethal juvenile cancer occurred in all Bilaterians and only in Bilaterians, that other multicells including cnidarians like Hydra did not experience it during evolution.

So does this report from Kiel University conflict with my theory?
