Shortly after, his parents divorced and his father remarried. He has two half-brothers, Alexander and Anton, and one half-sister, Annie.
As a child, Hysén spent his early childhood moving around due to his father's football career. Prior to his parents' divorce, Hysén lived in Gothenburg, Sweden and Eindhoven, Netherlands.
The first club he played for was Ubbhult IF because his cousin played there. Hysén only played for the team between 1986 and 1988. The next club he played for was Lindholmens BK because that is where he lived at the time. In 1995, Hysén played for Lundby IF where he stood for four years.
In 1999, he signed with BK Häcken where he spent a total of five seasons.
He joined Djurgården from BK Häcken in 2004, and signed a contract until 2008.During his time with Djurgården, he won Allsvenskan, the Swedish top division, in 2005. He is left-footed, and started off as a left-winger but, during his time in Djurgården, he would occasionally play as a striker, and since coming back home to Sweden and IFK Göteborg he has mainly been playing as a striker, though he is mostly used as a winger when playing for the national team.
On 23 August 2006, Tobias signed a deal to join Sunderland, for £1.7 million. Hysén had an immediate impact on his first start for the club, against West Bromwich Albion, creating the second goal, and generally impressing. Under Roy Keane, however, Hysen was often overlooked for Ross Wallace. Despite this, Hysen scored his first goal for the club in a 1–1 draw with Leicester City, at the Stadium of Light, just minutes after being brought on as a substitute. Coincidentally, he netted the opener in the Black Cats' 2–0 win at Leicester on New Year's Day 2007.
In late July 2007, it was revealed that Tobias had requested a move back to his native Sweden. He claimed that he and his girlfriend had never really settled in Sunderland.
On 25 August 2007, Hysén completed his move to IFK Göteborg for an undisclosed fee.Thus becoming the fifth member of his family to play for the club. In 2009, he scored 18 goals, making him the top scorer of Allsvenskan alongside Brazilian player Wánderson do Carmo.
Hysén suffered a series of minor injuries through his 2010 season which prevented him from ever reaching the top of his game, though he still managed to produce 10 goals before ending the season. Tobias kept up a great scoring record as he ended the 2011 season scoring 16 goal in 29 games, making him the second best goalscorer of Allsvenskan 2011. He was succeeded by former teammate Mathias Ranégie who scored 21 goals.
Tobias Hysén have been considered to be one of the best active players in the Swedish football league.Many have been surprised by Hyséns dedication to stay with IFK Göteborg. In 2010, he turned down an offer from Belgian top club Club Brugge, and instead signed a new 4-year deal with Göteborg.
Hysén signed a two-year contract with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Dongya in the 2013–2014 winter transfer window.In his first season, he scored 19 goals and made 10 assists in 28 matches. In April 2015, he agreed to a contract extension of a further two years.

In January 2005, he made his international debut in a friendly against South Korea.
Hysén got a sudden call-up for Sweden's 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification game against Malta, due to the recent death of the brother of Henrik Larsson, for which Larsson got permission to leave the squad. He was later called up for a few exhibition games with the national team, but was often overlooked for Marcus Berg and/or Alexander Gerndt when it came to more important games, mainly due to the fact that they played on a higher level in their club teams.[ citation needed ]
As of 2011, and in the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying games, Hysén was called up regularly by the new national team coach Erik Hamrén, having played 7 games and scored 6 goals. Hysén represented Sweden at Euro 2012.
