it's selection. they just developed it and got higher chance to survive. Therefore those that don't developed it died out and only the one with hide ability remains.

Evolution is caused by mutation which also causes cancer. So the adaption in large animals may conclude to stopage/slowing down of Evolution. That's my take .

Just thinking. If the hypercancer theory kills cancer surely we could individualise one of the cancer cells from the original copies and therefore make hyper cancers for people suffering and possible saving or at least prolonging lives?

The solution to the paradox for anyone who cares is to make an MRI machine large enough to fit a whale inside. The next step is obvious lol you need to check the entire whale for tumors. We would have to analyze the number of tumors and the size of them. Those measurements will give us an indication of the impact hypertumors have on cancer development.
