Because the goal of any species is reproduction. The parts that are necessary for that purpose are going to be the most sensitive both to ensure they’re protected and to make the act of reproduction more pleasurable to encourage the behavior. To that end, there are a lot of nerve endings there to make any feeling more intense, including pain

1. Production of sperm needs a temp lower than rest of body temp – this means testicles need to be outside the human body and need to hang loose in warm weather and be drawn closer to abdomen in cold weather
2. Lots of nerve endings – to enhance arousal and sexual satisfaction leading to more reproduction
3. Pain referral – unprotected and yet important – ergo pain must be severe to encourage the owner to be careful at all times to avoid injury – this goes to the point where injury to the groin can be sensed across back, kidneys, abdomen and other shared nervous pathways

Because it’s a huge evolutionary trait to preserve your balls. Individuals who protect their balls over everything else in their bodies are less likely to become sterile and therefore more likely to pass on their genes.
