What can cause an orangish brown stool? Stools are soft and formed. Does orangish stool mean bile duct blockage or cancer?

In brief: Not usually

Bile duct blockage presents with clay-gray colored stools or even dark stools if it bleeds or if sits at the end of the duct (ampulla).
Never heard of orange stools.
