Our expert says:
No,hemorroids would not cause pale ribbon-like stools. I agree with your doctor, rather do the colonoscopy ( they do it under anaesthetic so it is not painful or uncomfortable)and it is really important that they exclude any narrowing or tumours in bowel. Pale stools can also be caused by problems in the biliary system.
