Can male children feel as much pain when hit in the testicles as grown men?

In brief: Absolutely-

That pain is just as bad if you are 2, 20 or 70.
These areas have large numbers of pain fibers and are very sensitive from day 1. In young kids the testicles are obviously smaller, so not as big of an area to actually get hit/injured, but when they are, just as painful.
