About Christine Olsen, MD, MS

I am a radiation oncologists at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center. I specialize in the treatment of prostate, bladder, testicular and other urologic cancers, as well as proton beam therapy and brachytherapy. At MGH, I work closely with a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, medical oncologists, and pathologist. I work with my patients to tailor the best treatment for them. My colleagues and I take an individual approach to each person’s care.

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is possibly the most frightening time in a person’s life. I hope that patients and their families are slightly less anxious after meeting with me. Knowing what to expect may help relieve some of the fear that comes with treatment for cancer. I strive to achieve the best possible outcome for each person in my care. This includes maintaining or improving their quality of life at all stages. It is incredibly rewarding to get to know patients and their caregivers, to understand their individual needs and preferences, and to address their medical, social, and emotional concerns.

I chose to work in oncology because I wanted to care for people at a critical time in their lives. I love working at MGH because I believe we’re all here for the right reasons: We feel privileged to care for patients; we’re committed to science, research, and innovation; and we’re proud to offer patients access to the latest and most effective treatments available.
