In brief: Be sure its a gang
A ganglion is a benign outpouching of fluid from a joint.
There are many other 'lumps ' that can form over joints so get checked. However regarding the ganglion, if it interfers with your ability to peform activiies, or your ability to wear socks, gloves or hurts, get it checked.

In brief: When?
When you've had enough of the pain.
Should always consider getting evaluated to be sure that nothing more sinister is causing the pain.
