A system for interactive interstitial photodynamic and photothermal tumor therapy and diagnosis is disclosed. The system comprises at least two primary radiation conductors at distal ends thereof interstitially inserted into a tumor; a diagnostic radiation source adapted to be activated and to transmit diagnostic radiation through at least one of said primary radiation conductors to the distal ends thereof, such that said diagnostic radiation is transmitted through tissue at said tumor site to distal ends of the remaining primary radiation conductors interstitially inserted into said tumor; a unit for collecting and evaluating diagnostic information from radiation received from said tumor ; a switching unit adapted to automatically switch between tumor therapy and tumor diagnostics; and a unit adapted to control said tumor therapy by regulating a therapeutical radiation intensity depending on said diagnostic information.
